Wohl - Bricks 4 Kidz Early Engineers (Session 2)

The City of St. Louis Recreation Department in partnership with Bricks 4 Kidz is pleased to offer their Early Engineers program. Early Engineers is a hands-on class where students build machines, buildings, vehicles, and other structures out of technic LEGO bricks, motors, and gears. Students follow a proprietary Bricks 4 Kidz plan to build a moving model. While exploring principles of engineering, physics, life sciences, and more, students will develop problem solving and critical thinking skills. Students build a new project each week, and each class begins with a teacher-led discussion related to the day’s model and the science behind it. We have models of varying degrees of difficulty to accommodate the age range of the class, ages 6-10.

Bricks 4 Kidz is St Louis is owned by Easy Tech LLC, an S corporation owned solely by Nancy Portscheller, a woman who grew up and currently resides in St Louis. Ms Portscheller has a BS – Aerospace Engineering from Missouri S&T and an MBA from Maryville University. Her goal is to provide fun Science Technology Engineering and Math programs to young children. Most Bricks 4 Kidz are teachers in school districts such as Brentwood, Kirkwood, Rockwood, and others. Other employees are college students that are working on degrees that work with children. Three employees are female engineers. All employees receive background checks and training.
