BrickFlicks for Primary Schools

Space Force Stop Motion Package

Due to increasing demand, this year we are introducing our Virtual Classroom! It is based on our 20+ years of experience teaching in schools throughout Ireland as well as our lifelong passion with the artform. The virtual classroom is a blended learning experience  which can include live and self guided elements to ensure that you and your students are engaged and enjoying the sessions throughout. 

We refer to the animation style that we use as Brickflicks, it is essentially storytelling using a combination of stop motion animation, LEGO and a variety of mixed materials. Our first release is the Space Force Programme and contains everything that you will need to ensure that your class can create their very own Stop Motion Animation with LEGO.

 

The Classroom kit is delivered to your school and includes 10 x LEGO Creator Sets, materials, accessories, online tutorials, downloadable resources as well as a suite of practical activities and online support throughout. 

 

This special Stop Motion Animation package is specifically designed for Senior Primary school students – 3rd – 6th Class. The kit is ideal for Project Based collaborative learning as students work together in groups of up to 3 (depending on class size) using one kit per group.
