We can customize each field trip to support your teaching curriculum needs and/or to be used as a fun activity. 
LEGO ® bricks are a great medium to help students to be fully engaged while they create and learn.  The benefits to our field trips are developing fine motor skills, team work, critical thinking and increasing self-confidence.  The students are able to enhance many skills while following the step by step instructions to create their models like attention to detail, completing steps in order, problem solving and hand eye coordination.  There are reduced transportation costs as we come to you with all the supplies needed to have a fabulous hands on learning event. 


Please note the following:
  • We are an approved Edmonton Public School Board Vendor.
  • For the majority of sessions the students are not able to take any of the models home with them due to the high costs of the supplies. 
  • The facilitator and field trip is not a replacement for the teacher or lesson plan.  The sessions are made to enhance what is learned in the classroom by introduction of same, similar and/or new terms.  Through building the students gain valuable insight and re-enforcement of concepts learned.
  • Please note in order to accommodate the session time, we will work through recess.  To help keep everyone healthy and the supplies as clean as possible, there will be no eating during the session.  
  • Typically the presenter will arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to the start time for set up.
  • We rely on volunteers (adults or grade 6 students) to help for a successful event.  We will give a suggestion of how many volunteers work for the majority of classes we visit.  But you know your students so if you feel it may be more appropriate to have 1 or 2 more volunteers then please feel free to arrange that.  
  • Having the students wear name tags is helpful.
  • Pre-payment is not required as an invoice is emailed to the administrator after the building session and payment can be mailed out to us.
  • Please note there may be a travel fee added to the invoice for schools outside of Edmonton area.
  • Please feel free to email us at anytime to receive a quote for an in school field trip.
