OLD SCHOOL TOOLS for NEW SCHOOL LEARNING

Children Are Born to Build

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.

Real Tools for Small Hands

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.

Learn about our after school programs here. We also offer special programs for school field trips, Girl and Boy Scout troops, and toddlers, as well as birthday parties. Contact us, if you're interested.

Presidents Week and Spring Break Camp Registration Open

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.

We're on PIX11, NBC, and NPR!

PIX11's Mr. G. visited us on Veteran's Day and broadcast a segment called ConstructionKids teaches children building blocks of life, which aired on January 9. NBC's Rehema Ellis visited us and produced a segment called Program Teaches Tech-Savvy Kids to Build With Old School Tools, which aired August 28, 2014. And on August 11, 2014, WNYC’s Beth Fertig profiled us on NPR’s Morning Edition Putting Power Tools In The Hands Of 5-Year-Olds.
