Engineering Classes (by bricks 4 Kidz)

Our one hour classes explore architecture, engineering and technology concepts using LEGO® bricks to build motorized models. Children add gears, axles, motors and battery packs to create their models. Students participate in 4-7 week sessions focused on exciting themes like Space Adventures, Famous Inventions, Laws of Motion, Forces of Nature, Transportation and more.  Lessons integrated into curriculum. Build a Dragster or a Space Orbiter or create a Windmill Farm with LEGO bricks!

Classes follow the Bricks 4 Kidz® motto:

We Learn, We Build, We Play with… LEGO® Bricks.

  • We Learn – Teachers provide a 5-10 minute STEM-themed lesson
  • We Build – Students build the model of the day with step-by-step instructions and then may modify their model
  • We Play – Students explore their own creativity through free play time

Kids Love to Dance

We have been teaching children dance and gymnastics for over thirty years. Our goal is to develop a love for self-expression in children through dance, gymnastics and creative movement.

SEE: your child develop dance motor skills that improve coordination and self-confidence.
LOOK: at the gymnastics that build strength, balance, and control.
TOUCH: your child’s creativity through mime, dancing, songs, and creative movement.
LISTEN: to your child’s excitement as they learn rhythm using musical instruments and creative props
WATCH: our classes, teachers and end-of-term performances and see why kids and parents love them!

Origami and Introduction to Japanese Culture

Origami, or the Japanese art of paper folding is fun and great for our kids’ developing brains. It encourages development of creativity, logical thinking, math and science skills, and improves memory and concentration. It has also been described as ‘yoga for the
mind’ and helps calm and relax our busy minds and bodies. Each week, kids will fold some origami and learn about a Japanese tradition, story or holiday. At the end of class, kids will choose which origami they wish to keep and which they would like to give to a community organization, like Roadrunner Food Bank, to share their creations (and perhaps a short message) with others. Roadrunner delivers food to over 500 people a day, mostly veterans, who dine alone at home.
Class Fee: $120 (fee will include all supplies, including some surprises.)
Instructor: Lina Adachi Chang, Ph.D.
