15th January - 19th February 2020 Lego club was an after-school activity for children form 2nd - 6th classes which ran every Wednesday from 15th January, to 19th February from 2.40 - 3.40 p.m. This afforded children to be guided and exposed to the immense possibilities available through lego. The course was run by a Wexford company Bricks4Kids. Bricks 4 Kidz, Wexford provides a comprehensive suite of STEM based programmes through LEGO® construction builds to preschools, primary and secondary schools. Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) is prominent in education and is important because it plays a vital role in our every day lives.
Science allows us to explore, investigate and develop an understanding of life.
Technology is human knowledge which involves tools, materials and systems.
Engineering is using skills to solve technical problems to design and build things.
Maths gives the opportunity to utilize and develop skills as we estimate, count and measure.
Our Creativity Centre located on the Quay in Wexford Town has recently been accredited by Science Foundation Ireland as a Science and Maths Discovery Centre. Each of their programmes have been designed by educators, engineers and architects and developed to match school curricula. The highest standards of learning are demonstrated at Bricks 4 Kidz and that is why primary teachers put Bricks 4 Kidz at the top of their list for extra curricular learning activities. It is a way to provide children with every opportunity for a future in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. It has been proven that children are more likely to pursue a career in these areas if they have had a positive STEM education experience at a young age and Bricks 4 Kidz Wexford harnesses this in a fun and innovative way.
