Fall

Our Kidizens Fall program is a highly interactive and immersive project-based learning session in which students meet once a week to build, manage and govern their own LEGO city. The program meets from September – December. Our 2014 Fall program is now open for registration. Please email info@kidzzinc.com for any questions.

NEW**This year we are very excited to introduce a revised curriculum incorporating many science, environmental, urban mechanic and engineering concepts utilizing motors, axles, gears and robotic kits.

Overview:

  • 15 week session, where children collaboratively build and learn the day-to-day civic and economic concepts of managing a city, and as such develop design thinking, problem solving, social and leadership skills.
  • Students attend one session a week
  • Ages 8 – 11
  • Cities are given a huge swath of LEGO land on which kidizens create their own small civilization and manage basic infrastructure and services
  • Students serve on a city council and may run for an elected position. Kidizens serve as Mayors, Judges, doctors, lawyers, fire chiefs, Sheriffs, Safety Inspectors and in many other roles on the City Council.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • A few robotic elements are intertwined into various city units (motorized controls, draw bridges, moving conveyor belts, sensors and lights) to teach kids many basic concepts in science and engineering.
