Big Builder lessons include discussions about shapes, spatial recognition and moveable versus immovable parts. Our instructors use proper math and science terminology to familiarize students with these professional terms. Builders learn simple addition and subtraction through building their models. Students will also discover basic principles of fractions as they learn the idea of parts of a whole.
We introduce laws of physics on a basic level through demonstrations of centrifugal force, gravity, torque, stability, friction, momentum, mechanical energy, balance, compaction and drive. Additionally, because many of our Big Builder models have nature/animal themes, students will learn basic concepts of biology.
We believe that lessons are learned and absorbed more easily through hands-on experiential learning. That is why our graduated Big Builders students will have a better understanding of everyday mathematical and scientific concepts.
