Trained instructors use LEGO Duplo and K’NEX educational kits to BUILD math and science skills. Our specially designed building kits have gears, levers and pulleys. Students build simple machines that really work, while BUILDING one motor skills and confidence. Classes are designed to reinforce classroom curriculum. Students use colors, sizes and shapes to build simple machines and then perform scientific experiments to see how they work. Several new and exciting machines are built each day. Literacy skills are improved by memorizing poems with hand motions for gears, levers and pulleys that reinforce how they work and what they do.
Students BUILD simple machines using gears, levers and pulleys and then MOTORIZE them using LEGO and K’NEX educational kits and curriculum while BUILDING math and science skills. Using the newest LEGO educational kit, students challenge one another to create, build and test the best design. Students will learn why a machine works and how to manipulate a machine to go faster or slower. Fine motor skills, critical thinking skills; imagination and confidence will increase in this funfilled class atmosphere. We teach division using gear ratios.
At Building Brains we are dedicated to teaching our students the Engineering Principals necessary to become successful Builders and Students. Our written curriculum teaches the Math and
Science TEKS. Building Brains uses teamwork and problem solving skills to teach students to build simple machines and then motorize them. Our written curriculum uses critical thinking skills to
Build better students. Our classes Build on one another as students advance through the curriculum.
Learn to BUILD simple machines using gears, levers and pulleys and then MOTORIZE these machines using LEGO educational kits and curriculum while BUILDING math and science skills. Students will learning how to apply engineering principals to everything they build. Students will understand how a machine works and understand how to manipulate it to go faster or slower. Fine motor skills, critical thinking skills, imagination and confidence will increase in this fun fill class.
OUR BUILDERS ARE BRILLIANT!
For students ages 3 to 14 years old. Classes are usually one hour a day per week for a semester.
