The VIB Clubs

Children love this! The VIB (Very Important Builders) Clubs is the perfect blend of LEGO based STEM activities and creativity. Each week builders will engage in a STEM task and use LEGO® bricks to solve the challenge. Over progressive lessons, students will learn to work collaboratively, engage in critical thinking and understand the importance of communication in STEM activities. Most importantly, they will have a joyful learning experience with our learning through play methods.

Learning through play and STEM go hand in hand to engage students at a deeper level with the skills and knowledge needed for future learning success. Additionally, students will learn socially, by sharing findings and ideas in a friend-filled environment.

Three Age-Engaging Levels

Your child is the heart of the VIB Club, so we focus their activities and lessons based on their needs and curriculum. Below are the suggested grade groupings and activities, but we can customize a club based on the needs of your school community.

The VIB Creator Club is designed for children in JK to Grade 1 – Each week, builders will be given a STEM-themed task and use LEGO® bricks to creatively solve the challenge. Over progressive lessons, students will learn to work collaboratively, understand the importance of communication, and develop confidence in their creativity. Most importantly, students will have a joyful learning experience.  (Maximum 16 students)

The VIB STEM Club is perfect for children in grades 2 to 4 – Builders will be given a STEM task (curriculum focused) and use LEGO® bricks to solve the challenge. Students will work in small teams, engage in critical thinking and understand the importance of communication in STEM problem solving. In addition students will be coached through each lesson on good leadership techniques. (Maximum 16 Students)

The VIB Coding for Robotics Club for grades 4 to 6. Students will develop their logic and coding skills using the LEGO Spike Prime Robotics kits (the new standard in competitive robotics kits world wide).  In teams of 2, students will work their way through understanding the various components and capabilities of the SPIKE Prime, then using Scratch coding, have their robot perform the weekly challenge task. Students will employ both math and logic skills to achieve goals. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to employ creativity to introduce uniqueness to their solutions. (Maximum 12 students).

Start a VIB Club at your school, as a lunch-time or after-school program.

Our trained and screened instructor will arrive with everything your VIB Club needs for their weekly lesson (LEGO, handouts, and materials). Students will work on solving a STEM-based experiential challenge during their one hour class. We’ll also provide expert coaching of the STEM skills: collaboration, communication, and critical thinking so they can arrive at great and innovative solutions.
