Bricks and Motors opened on March 1 and offers a curriculum that encourages hands-on projects that allow the students to design, think critically, and communicate with one another.

Max Crothall, 6, uses a computer to build and program a robot to move and make sound. Kids can do this at Bricks and Motors in Rye Brook, Westchester.

Bricks and Motors opened on March 1, introducing innovative Lego-based enrichment programs using robotics and offering mobile birthday party packages. In the program, Lego bricks are used to teach children about technology, engineering, and science. The Bricks and Motors curriculum encourages hands-on projects that allow the students to design, think critically, and communicate with one another. The program allows children to develop a love for technology and science, says Amy Mandavia, director of Bricks and Motors, especially because they are being exposed to it at a young age.

Several age-appropriate programs are available for students in pre-K through sixth grade that introduce students to robotics and teach them how to bring their creations to life. During these 10-week sessions, students develop communication, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Mandavia says the program is “a non-traditional way of learning through engineering and science.” Students will work on projects using Legos in order to build robotics and simple machines.

Bricks and Motors also hosts birthday parties that can arrive on your doorstep. Entertainment is provided with party themes such as “Lego Mystery,” “Robotics,” “Junior Engineers,” and “Road Warriors” for children 5-10 years old. Lego projects, games, music, and food are included in the packages.
