Kidizens Winter/Spring Program

Kidizens Winter & Spring Program

Kidizens is our flagship program aimed at students between the ages of 8-11. The program provides a creative social and learning environment where students build and inhabit their own LEGO city. We encourage collaborative and guided discovery of real-world concepts while role-playing and having fun in a universe built of LEGOs. Our mission is to inspire kids to become great citizens and future leaders, one LEGO brick at a time.

Our Kidizens Spring program is a highly interactive, fun and immersive project-based learning session in which students meet once a week to build, manage and govern their own LEGO city. In the second semester, the Kidizens either start a new city or continue to build the city they started in the first semester, exploring new in-depth civic topics as they manage a now functioning city. They take a deeper dive into running businesses and explore local government.

Problem Solving

The Kidizens also manage city budgets, enact laws, cope with natural disasters and crises. They also interact with other cities and cooperate on various issues, as they develop problem solving and analytical thinking skills.

Teachers provide historical and local perspectives through lessons on related civic and economic topics and guide students to learn through the consequences of their own actions while encouraging “out of the box” and critical thinking.
