Young Engineers Bricks Challenge Program
Children aged 6 to 8, typically P2 to early P5.
Bricks Challenge is a LEGO® based programme. The programme operates a 4 term cycle with no repeats across the academic year. Activities are aligned to Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) at first and second level with particular attention on Numeracy and Science Experiences & Outcomes.
Each class is 75 minutes long and delivers both theoretical and practical knowledge of the STEM subjects. Children are provided with a unique LEGO® bricks kit and build a motorised model at each class.
Throughout our classes we aim to excite, inspire and educate your children in a way that sparks their curousity and builds their confidence in STEM subjects. Children leave our classes proud of their achievements with new knowledge and a new learning experience.
