Ms. Cindy Yew, who founded Powerbricks Kidz, explained to us about the classes in line with their motto “We Learn, We Build, We Play”.
Growing up, we have all played with building blocks at some point in our childhood. When it comes to building blocks the household name would be none other than LEGO®. Kids have always liked LEGO®, so do adults! There is no age limit at all for LEGO®, regardless whether it’s free build ideas or advanced model bricksets, there is a product that is suitable for each generation. As a kid, we have used LEGO® bricks to build our dream houses, dream cars and even creatures we create based on our imagination. It turns out that LEGO® play has far-reaching developmental benefits for kids, way more impactful than just fine motor coordination, and we go on benefitting from it as adults.
One of the programs offered at Powerbricks Kidz is the Bricks 4 Kidz® program catered for children between 2.5 – 13 years old. The program uses LEGO® bricks to deliver hands-on lessons where kids will design and build machines, catapults, pyramids, derby cars, buildings and other constructions out of LEGO® bricks. With a little coaching, kids can learn about engineering, architecture, physics and maths using specialized components. While learning fundamentals of engineering and architecture in a noncompetitive setting, students will also be able to socialize with friends and at the same time develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
01 We Learn
First 15 minutes involves briefing and brainstorming session where teachers would brief the students on the day’s model and kids will learn about everything from general knowledge about the model to gears, torque and friction and more;
02 We Build
Followed by 30 minutes hands-on model-building; and
03 We Play
Final 15 minutes students would explore and unleash their own creativity through freeplay. Students may use this time to improvise their models as well.
