It's called Bricks 4 Kidz and it's a creative way to learn about problem solving and teamwork, and don't forget science.

Gather up some axles, a motor and a bushing or two and it's amazing that you can actually build a working machine, that is as long as you follow the instructions.

First graders are all smiles at Atkinson Elementary School.

They're using leggos to build simple machines.

In teams of two they work together, picking out the parts and assembling them.

Wendy Land, with Bricks 4 Kidz, shows them the 15 steps it takes to make the machine work.

Some of the teams finish faster than others, but by the time class is over, every loop de loop is well looping
  
Wendy provides the students with all of the supplies, each kit contains enough parts to build 60 different creations related to science.
