Kidizens is proud to partner with select schools in the Bay Area that embrace project-based learning philosophies to offer a variety of Kidizens after school workshops that combine civic and economic learning with LEGO fun for students. Our Fall 2016 workshops are:
The workshop will have kids creatively thinking, designing, planning and launching businesses. The workshop will then teach the basics of managing a business with LEGO-based prototypes. Each child will design, build, budget and manage a business of their choice. In this context, we will discuss economic concepts such as budgets, loans, profits and overhead, as the Young Entrepreneurs will use their ingenuity and acumen to make their businesses appealing to customers resulting in successful, profitable ventures. In addition, they will serve on a citywide council to manage policy making for the city which may have the potential to affect their businesses. The session will end with the children sharing their businesses in a ‘Shark Tank’ style presentation.
