With a little bit of creativity, a pile of LEGO® bricks can transform into almost anything. Maybe a battle robot, a bridge, or a three-dimensional art sculpture. They can even become movie stars, ready to step into a stop-animation film and bare their plastic hearts on the silver screen. They can also be a part of kids' introduction to the world of science, technology, engineering, and math at at Bonanza Educational.
The organization's programs take a fun approach to building skills in STEM fields. Kids from elementary school to high school come together to tackle projects and challenges that incorporate LEGO® bricks. The educators behind these sessions include current and former elementary teachers, coaches, artists, and other professionals. However, Bonanza Educational's original team was much smaller. Three friends, who all loved LEGO® bricks, came together with a fun and creative way to help kids excel in a technology-driven world.
