Spring Program Description
Brixology: In this new and exciting program, children will build a different LEGO(r) project each week. Each program has been developed by a LEGO(r) Certified Professional. Mechanical engineering will be explored as students build boats and vehicles. Aerospace engineering will come alive as they assemble a space station. A wide array of scientific principals will be explored through Lego builds: carnival rides, drawing machines, mechanical animals, trust bridges, and so much more. Your future engineer will foster their creativity through fun and hands-on design challenges. Let the tinkering begin!

Spring Session will consist of an 8-Week Brixology Program which allows kids to step into the shoes of an engineer!
– Using LEGO® bricks, build a different engineering-themed project in each class.
– Explore engineering fields including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical, and bio-engineering.
– Use critical thinking, cooperation, and creative problem-solving to test and improve creations.
– Experience extended learning with a take home toy to reinforce each concept.

Weekly Topics: Aerospace, carnivals, creatures, vehicles, towers, boats, bridges, and machines.

The student of the month must also display excellent citizenship by aligning him/herself with MCFS school values. Lastly, he/she shows exemplar character through his/her compassion, honesty, trustworthiness, responsibility, optimism and loyalty in creating a positive school environment. Each month, the classroom teacher, special area teachers, and administrators can nominate students for that month. One boy and one girl can be selected from each grade level as long as they have met the criteria. Our goal is to have 100% student participation by June in each grade. The students will have demonstrated the “Big Three”:
