In the Kidizens “Young Senators” program, students govern a state comprised of the cities from our regular Kidizens program. The Young Senators serve as the representatives of a state government, working with their constituencies (regular Kidizen cities and its leaders) to enact laws and bills. The Young Senators also build their own LEGO city, which serves as the state capital and feature a capitol building and government structures as well as museums, highways and perhaps a mall or esplanade. They work with each city’s representatives in formulating tax rates, fighting crime and dealing with environmental issues and major business plans. The committees of Senators also act as political advisors and come up with challenging and interesting situations to which the Mayors and representatives from different cities respond to.
We successfully ended our Young Senators Fall program. Please check out our Spring program here.
