In the Kidizens “Young Senators” program, students will govern a state
comprised of the cities from our regular Kidizens program. The Young Senators will serve as the representatives of a state government, working with their constituencies to enact laws and bills. The Young Senators will also build their own LEGO city, which will serve as the state capital and feature a capitol building and government structures as well as museums, highways and perhaps a mall or esplanade. They will work with each city’s representatives in formulating tax rates, fighting crime and dealing with environmental issues and major business plans. They will be participating in round tables and congressional debates on various policy issues, such as immigration, clean air acts, increased space funding, oil exports, and many more. The committees of Senators will act as political
advisors and come up with challenging and interesting situations to which the Mayors and representatives from different cities will respond to and then collectively solve the problems.
It’s going to be a whole lot of work, a whole lot of learning and, of course, a whole lot of fun!
Take our virtual tour to learn more about Kidizens and watch a testimonial video to hear what parents and students have to say about their experience. Then register today to join the Young Senator program.
