After-School LEGO Workshops

Schools Offering Kidizens After-School LEGO Classes in Fall.

Kidizens is proud to partner with select schools in the Bay Area that embrace project-based learning philosophies to offer a variety of Kidizens workshops that combine civic and economic learning with LEGO fun for students. Our Fall 2016 workshops are:

Keys School
Kidizens Young Entrepreneurs Workshop 

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.

8-Week Session; Thursdays 3:30pm – 4:30pm (Grades 3-4) starting on Sep 22nd

Bubb Elementary
Kidizens: Build-A-City Workshop 

A Project-based Community Building Experience with LEGOs

“Build-A-City” workshop is a highly interactive and fun community-building session – filled with creativity and excitement – where the kids build an entire LEGO city, while learning about important civic and economic concepts, in a fun, social learning environment. In this workshop, students work in groups and committees together to construct an entire city over multiple weeks. They take care of first the basic needs of the residents (health, safety, infrastructure) and then attend to other projects in the city with a goal towards improving citizen happiness  In an engaging social environment, they must use analytical thinking, cooperative skills and effective communications to make decisions as a city council and provide for their residents while managing a limited city budget. The kids will role-play as city council members to address  situations, problems and needs and as such gain problem solving, public speaking and many real-life skills and experience. In the Winter and Spring sessions, the students will have an opportunity to build the city further, catering to its growing infrastructure and economic needs. 

10-Week session; Mondays 2:45pm – 3:45pm (Grades 3-4), starting on Sep 25th
