Powering Creativity

Third-grade students at Deauville Gardens West Elementary recently received a visit from representatives from Bricks 4 Kidz, a hands-on educational program that allows students to build with Lego bricks while fostering creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

During the lesson, students learned about the Wright brothers and their goal to build the first powered aircraft. With that inspirational story in mind, third-graders worked collaboratively and followed step-by-step instructions to create their own motorized model airplane.

“The students were so engaged and loved building their model airplanes,” said third-grade teacher Christine Orlando.
