Do you love a challenge? Well, join the league! In this league, we will tackle a new building challenge every week! From pirate boats that float to marble run mazes, we'll be problem solving and engineering new creations together. While we're building, we will have the opportunity to talk to each other and share ideas, giving everyone a chance to socially interact and create new friendships. Do you have friends that enjoy being creative? Invite them to join the league, too! Round up all your Lego building friends and get ready to build with us!
Students will learn to think creatively, problem solve, participate in group discussions as well as give and provide constructive criticism. Guided by a Georgia Tech Mechanical Engineer. This will give children the opportunity to get creative and build anything they choose with LOTS of LEGO while seeing where engineering can take them. They can either work on their own creations, or build as a team.
The league will provide the LEGO, while the kids provide the imagination! All materials must stay at the club.
Is An Inclusive Space
We are a fully inclusive space for building and learning. In Brick League there are opportunities to belong to a community without having to “fit in” or hide differences, but rather embrace and learn from them. LEGO is also a toy that is perfectly suited for individuals with special needs. It allows for creative, solitary play; it offers repetitive, stress-reducing movements that build motor skills, and it is a vehicle for social skill building and speech enhancement. In addition, LEGO build an interest that individuals with a disability can share with their typical peers. We encourage mutual respect, effective relationships, clear communication, explicit understandings about expectations and critical self-reflection. And, most important LEGO are fun ways for us all to connect!
