Children are actively involved in hands-on learning as they’re guided to expand their critical thinking and planning skills as they build. Critical thinking and construction skills include mathematics, physics, and design. The possibilities are endless from constructing with Legos, blocks and wood, to building friendships along the way; children explore techniques to build and create. Many projects go home, but for group creations pictures are the memory!
