Would you like to leverage your love of LEGOs to learn real-life skills and strategies?
For children, ages 6 and up, who love LEGOs and are looking for new opportunities to collaborate with peers in a fun and interactive social learning environment, we offer Kidizens.
Kidizens is an innovative educational environment where students build, inhabit, manage and govern 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.
The guiding principle of the Kidizens program is to offer a highly immersive, experiential learning environment for kids that nurtures their creative confidence and design thinking skills. We believe that when kids are engaged in a project that they find meaningful and exciting, their desire for knowledge is limitless. Research has shown that students recall 20% of what they hear but as much as 90% of what they have the opportunity to “experience” or do.
At Kidizens, we combine experiential learning with detailed civics, history and real-life lessons to create a fun LEGO environment that encourages students to let their imaginations take them to new heights. In designing, building, and governing an interactive LEGO society, our kidizens are truly engaged as stakeholders and motivated to learn about everything from the intricacies of a city council meeting to the importance of managing a budget. Along the way, they learn important skills, such as problem-solving, decision making, conflict resolution, public speaking and leadership.
The goal is simple: Inspire our students to develop the skills they need to become the good citizens and civically aware and responsible future leaders of tomorrow.
We also offer in-school and customized workshops, birthday parties, and drop-in sessions to supplement our standard program offerings.
