Bricks 4 Kidz
Bricks 4 Kidz is described as a way to develop a child's potential by encouraging curiosity and creativity. Children learn and grow with fun filled model plans that are designed by engineers and architects and provide an engaging platform that reinforces S.T.E.M. based principles and learning with Lego(R) bricks. The program is also described as a way to enhance self esteem, improve fine-motor skills, and teach important classroom lessons such as organization and following directions. Classes are at the Harris Community Center, 401 N. Alexander St. For information on the classes e-mail Michael Dark, or visit the Bricks 4 Kidz Website
