Bricks 4 Kidz® offers a unique approach to building S.T.E.M. skills. The company uses LEGO® and custom lesson plans to teach S.T.E.M. skills to children ages 3-13 in over 400 worldwide locations. Bricks 4 Kidz® offers programs as short as an hour and as intensive as a week-long summer camp, in the school setting and outside of school, with S.T.E.M.-focused lessons and activities.
To better understand the relationship between Bricks for Kidz® programs and growth in math and science skills, the company contracted with Advanced Education Measurement (AEM) to perform the first-ever national study of program effectiveness. AEM administered a pretest/posttest design that measured student ability in targeted math and science skills for two Bricks 4 Kidz® programs to 702 students nationwide in grades K-5. AEM first distributed its full results through a white paper available upon request. This report summarizes the white paper’s major finding.
The main finding from AEM’s study was that Bricks 4 Kidz® students of all ages demonstrated growth in targeted math and science skills. Participation in Bricks 4 Kidz® In-School Workshops and 6-week After-School Enrichment programs was associated with increased scores on test items that measured student understanding of key Bricks 4 Kidz® curriculum points.
