BrickLAB Brain Builders Camp


Let’s build better brains! Using bricks to enhance learning, this camp focuses on communication and teamwork as students tackle exercises in social studies, geography, history and biology, all while constructing, collaborating and learning together. Using brain-building logic puzzles to develop new problem-solving skills, each day of camp introduces fresh and exciting STEM concepts to the class.

Students engage in stimulating science and engineering challenges by using logic to determine patterns, construct unique BrickLAB designs to withstand outside forces and translate abstract ideas into concrete models! From structures to puzzles, BrickLAB Brain Builders is a sure-fire way to introduce fun and interactive learning into any setting.
