ConstructionKids introduces new builders to a broad range of materials and tools. We study the natural and man-made world around us, while learning to work individually as well as part of a team. Our goal is to share the joy of building, revising, and repairing.
Our kids work on individual and group projects with real tools and materials that are scaled and selected for small hands. Creativity and problem solving are fostered. If your child can imagine it, we'll help him/her build it—safely and with the guidance of experienced grown-up hands.
Our Winter after school programs begin January 13. Check out our Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoon programs here.
February 16-20, we are hosting a Presidents' Week camp to build small- and large-scale "presidential" projects. Then in March and April, we are offering three spring break camps: two at Industry City, March 16-20 and March 23-27, and one at BLDG92, April 6-10.
