Building Block Event to Encourage Creativity and Collaboration
To welcome San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) students back for the new semester, the District’s Expanded Learning Department is hosting a fun-filled Saturday morning of creativity and collaboration featuring Lego building blocks and more.
Expanded Learning, also known as Sunrise/CAPS, has organized its First Annual Brick Blast for Saturday, January 7, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Indian Springs High School. The free, all-ages event will feature five interactive stations, including a photo station, Make-N-Take station, and an Explore with Lego station.
“We are so excited to hold Expanded Learning’s first Annual Brick Blast. We were inspired by the nationwide Brick Fests occurring in several states,” said Expanded Learning Director Ann Pearson. “Lego building encompasses several skills such as problem solving, collaboration, communication, science, engineering, technology and just plain fun! We hope to see our scholars at this event.”
The Brick Blast is a free event, but families must sign up in advance for free tickets via EventBrite. Families can select one of three different, hour-long time slots, with the first block starting at 9 a.m. The first 100 students at each time slot who show their SBCUSD school ID will receive a free swag bag. Food trucks will be on site if families would like to purchase food.
