Build and Make with Giant Block Bricks for Kindergarten Engineers!

Help me give my students EVERBLOCK Modular Building Blocks that will let my Kindergarten and First Grade engineers build out bigger than themselves in as many ways as they can imagine, iterate and prototype!

My Students

My students come from primarily immigrant households and often have their first exposure to many learning experiences within our school, from playing with LEGO bricks to a trip to the Bronx Zoo.

My children are bright, motivated and hardworking.

They enjoy new experiences and are active explorers who want to discover the world around them and make sense of it!

Our immediate community is disadvantaged and we have few resources. They often have difficulty accessing the opportunities that others take for granted.

My Project

Sometimes little learners have a hard time because little hands don't work well with smaller LEGO bricks or other fine motor skill based activities. That means we have to think BIG to get K and even first grade learners to have access to STEAM and computer science activities in school.

EVERBLOCK gives K and first grade a big help for little hands with oversized bricks that make it easy for them to imagine, build and make what their minds want to without struggling or fumbling over small pieces!!

Let them prototype their architectural ideas or encode giant sentence or use it to see how to break up numbers! The ideas will be endless--if you give us the chance to build it, the learning will come!
