Brick Labs offers fun, educational and extremely engaging programming for children 5 to 11 years of age . Programs focus on a variety of areas from the STEAM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.) Our instructors use learning through play methods to ensure deeper and more memorable learning for your child. We offer rolling enrolment so start anytime this fall. Need to miss a class? Never an issue with us, we ensure your child receives all the classes you have registered for with easy rescheduling (some exceptions apply).
New Programs for November
Math is Everywhere! We have introduced a new experiential math program, where children can actually apply there math skills in fun and engaging activities. It will give them the “why” behind the math skill and lesson. Offered in three cohorts: Grades 1/2, Grades 3/4, and Grades 5/6. 16 1 hour classes starts in November and run to March. (Makeup classes may not be available). $129.
Crafts with Kate is a 4 week program offered Saturdays 12.30 to 1.45pm starting November 19th. Children will build and take home a variety of crafts that are perfect for gift giving. Jewelry, beading, photography and LEGO crafts will provide your child with both fun and gifts for the family. $149 includes materials

Robotics and Coding
We have 3 program levels to choose from: Intro, Intermediate and Skilled. In our Intro and Intermediate programs, students learn on the LEGO WeDo 2.0. The Introductory program takes them through the basic device functions (movement, sound, light, sensing) with a variety of fun builds and coding lessons. At the intermediate level, students are presented with more problem solving issues, giving them more freedom to be creative in their builds and logical in their codes.
In the advanced program, students will move to the LEGO Spike Prime Robotics kits. Using similar coding methods to the WeDo, students will now have a device that allows more functions to take place simultaneously, thereby allowing for larger, more complex builds and coding structures.
All our programs allow for students to progress at a pace that is comfortable for them. Programs are 8 sessions long, 75 minutes per session.
Similar to our robotics program, there are 3 levels to our engineering program. Intro and Intermediate focus on motion concepts. In each of these programs, children follow an instructional build, then perform tests and experiments to actually see how the specific concept is being applied. Students then have the opportunity to get creative and apply the lesson by creating their own device. These programs are very hands on and experiential in their learning design. In the advanced program, students take their builds to the next level by using motors, advanced gear functions and structural design techniques to explore unique concepts in engineering. Students will also have the opportunity to building using pneumatics and renewable energy devices.
