BRICKS-4-KIDZ is currently offering a free class room demonstration of our educational and fun After School Programs. BRICKS-4-KIDZ will do a free one hour demonstration for the class of your choice, either during school hours, at lunch time, or after school.
BRICKS-4-KIDZ After School Enrichment Programs are currently operating in 29 Public and Private Schools in Henderson, Summerlin, Northwest Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Southern Highlands. BRICKS-4-KIDZ After School Programs build on the popularity of LEGO® bricks to deliver a high level of quality educational play. Students construct a new model each week based on exciting themes from space to engineering marvels, amusement parks to greatest inventions.

Trained, screened BRICKS-4-KIDZ instructors lead a discussion related to that day’s model, using materials and curriculum designed by educators to teach concepts across a wide variety of subject areas. Students will learn Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math concepts (STEM), as well as team work, history, geography, working creatively and much, much more. Each student takes home from each class a Teacher’s Handout that describes what they learned that day – the Handout makes a great discussion tool for both the parent and student.
BRICKS-4-KIDZ models are unique, designed specifically for BRICKS-4-KIDZ, they cannot be found anywhere else. Currently over 165 models are featured in our programs, they never have to repeat a model build during a school year. BRICKS-4-KIDZ Franchisees are supported by a team of talented model designers in their Corporate Facility – new models are released monthly.
The majority of our models are functional – using battery packs and motors. The models, when completed, offer students instant feedback as to the success of their efforts. If the model does not work, our staff works with the student, to identify the problem and correct it – thus reinforcing and teaching the student problem solving skills.
BRICKS-4-KIDZ programs facilitate and support the efforts of Public and Private Schools to teach their students STEM concepts as well as self-confidence, team work, creative thinking, problem solving and history. We love to work with After School Coordinators, Principals, Assistant Principals, and PTA’s to develop successful and customized programs for each of their schools.
