A Different Type of Bay Area LEGO Program

A highly creative, collaborative and engaging, project-based, learning environment with countless LEGOs, where children build, inhabit, manage and govern their own small scale cities. Kidizens LEGO camps, classes and workshops provide Bay Area children a unique opportunity to learn valuable real-life lessons about civics and economics — community building, policy-making, governance and budgeting — as well as how to successfully operate in a team environment and acquire civic leadership skills. Whether you are considering a camp, after-school class, workshop or even a birthday party venue, Kidizens can help provide a unique, fun and socially rich, LEGO-based learning experience.

what Parents and Teachers say about Us

Parents love Kidizens because we have made it fun to learn. Students love Kidizens because they get to interact with their friends solving problems and running a universe made out of LEGOs.

My son has done Little League and AYSO but his favorite afterschool activity hands down has been Kidizens. He started at Kidizens in their last LEGO summer camp, which he loved and has almost finished his Fall class. He loves and thrives on the interaction, the planning, discussions, and LEGO building. He’s learning without realizing it and totally enjoying it. Teachers cover in a learn by doing way city planning and infrastructure, flood and sewer management, utilities, police and fire departments, campaigning for city council and elections. You can see the excitement in the kids at the end of class when they assemble to debrief and plan as a group. The teachers have a great way with the kids giving them ample room while also leading them into various learning and planning scenarios.

Kidizens was a fabulous experience for our teachers. They provided the curriculum and resources needed to keep our students engaged over two school days. The students learned all about community development, financing/budgeting, collaboration, communication, negotiation, etc. The list could go on. The cities they built were unique, and there was a lot of room for students to share their diverse strengths. We will definitely be inviting them back for other opportunities.

Meeta Gaitonde Program Director, Phillips Brooks School

I am grateful to the Kidizens leadership and facilitators for delivering this high quality learning experience to my class. The students’ depth of understanding is far greater because they built it themselves. They had a lot of fun while learning, which is the cornerstone of Kidizens’ offerings. I highly recommend this top-notch company and their workshops and will be using them again in the future.

Thank you, for not only having a great program that is fun and full of learning experience about civic life, but also for providing another experience for my son in which he took a risk and found a pot of gold.

I was blown away by how much learning was incorporated – budgets, civics, city planning, making choices, financial choices, marketing, cooperative law making.

I was impressed with all the knowledge he came home to share with us about running his city- a flood, a worker strikes, and the issues with building a quidditch field next to the biggest toys r us he’s ever seen!

If your kid is a thinker and a problem solver, then they won’t be able to get enough of it. You actually get to make something, and create an entire world!

Bill E

My son attended a week long winter camp at Kidizens and absolutely loved it. He couldn’t wait to get up everyday to go to Kidizens.
