“Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand.” – Confucius 450 BC

Kidizens has created our innovative education based on years of research pointing to the benefits of experiential learning. Watch our virtual tour or read what students and their parents have to say and you’ll know our programs produce happy kids. But the true benefit in Kidizens lies in the deep learning that takes place while the students are having all that fun.

Kidizens combines key insights from experiential learning researchers with years of successful LEGO learning programs to create a system that inspires students to learn.
Here are just a few of the studies and research reports that show why innovative experience-based programs, like Kidizens, produce results:
