Bricks 4 Kidz came to our school during engineers week. Their workshops provide a unique opportunity for the pupils to learn about engineering.
Engineers Week is a week-long programme of nationwide events with the aim of celebrating the world of engineering in Ireland. The week aims to create a positive awareness and spark enthusiasm about the engineering profession to people of all ages, especially students and their teachers and parents.
LEGO® based education programmes have proven to be a very effective method of introducing engineering concepts to school age children and a Bricks 4 Kidz engineering workshop provides children of all ages with a fun and educational wat to develop their understanding of engineering principles. Bricks 4 Kidz proprietary model builds, which have all been designed by engineers, are accompanied by lesson plans which explain the concept of engineering to the children.
These workshops enable our pupils to estimate, observe, predict, measure and record their findings during the model construction.
