S.T.E.A.M. powered programs for inquisitive minds

We specialise in enabling kids to develop their ideas into solutions for tomorrow.

CODING

Learning to code helps to break a big problem into smaller parts and through this process, helps to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.

ROBOTICS

Robots can bring maths to life.  Putting together algorithms and seeing how they impact a physical object , makes sequencing and logic tangible and fun.

ENGINEERING

Building and making is a wonderful creative outlet, improving hand-eye co-ordination and helping to develop and enhance cognitive skills.

SCIENCE

Experimenting with different substances and methods allows for a better understanding of the world we live in and who and what we share it with.

S.T.E.A.M. and 21st Century Learning

Build-A-Mind provides numerous enrichment programs to inspire kids to try something new, to get creative and to push their boundaries.  We believe that given encouragement and access to a variety of tools and building materials, kids will go “outside of the box” to experiment and create things that we can only dream of.  We work with the children to help them develop their ideas and self confidence.  We aim to teach them that it’s OK to make mistakes and that not all things go to plan, but that each step is an opportunity to learn and improve.

All of our programs reinforce the four c’s of 21st century learning: creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking and are specially designed to inspire and engage children in the subjects Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M).

At Build-A-Mind we don’t only create things with LEGO® bricks, although we do use them a lot!  We also build, design, code and make with Cubelets, LittleBits, Dash and Dot, K’Nex, Goldiblox, MaKey Makey, Edisons, Arduino, Meperbots, Mindstorms, Raspberry Pi, paper, straws, wood, bricks, tin foil, rubber and even spaghetti!

Blue Mountains and beyond

Based in the Blue Mountains NSW, our ‘edutainment’ programs are offered locally and throughout the surrounding areas like Penrith and Richmond, as well as further afield, like Kellyville and Sutherland.  We provide themed and generic activities for holiday workshops, after school clubs, incursions, parties, special events and corporate ventures.   Build-A-Mind also provides full day events for home schooling groups and private tutoring.  Whilst LEGO® robotics are our most popular program, we also provide science events, computer programming, jewellery design, spa parties, handmade cosmetic creations, building activities, stop motion and many more.  So if you’re looking for kids party venues, start with us!

Thank you for the opportunity to work with you this afternoon, the class were so engaged and it was great to listen to some of the conversations that were going on. I especially loved that some of my lower students were able to lead those discussions with fantastic ideas.

Fantastic experience!!!  Thank you Kerry and team for providing an amazing experience.  Every child participated in this wonderful incursion and produced amazing creations.  We particularly like using computers to operate the Lego builds and also the robots.  We look forward to your next visit.
