Step 2: Marketing

A famous person once said, “Build it and they will come.” Which is nice, but we think we still probably ought to tell them about it too!

PRINT: We love our electric marketing, but print is still very effective. Because we know how much this directly impacts attendance, we provide you with flyers, posters, yard signs, etc. But not only will we print and deliver all of our flyers, we will pre-sort them for distribution, labeling each quantity by teacher. (What?!? Yes, it’s true. This is totally awesome.

We prefer to start getting materials circulating as early as six weeks prior to the program.

Will you be able to email us a list of teachers and the quantity of flyer for each?

What is the best delivery date for your flyers?

ONLINE: Digital Marketing is a fantastic way to catch busy parents, which is why we provide custom marketing graphics to add to your Facebook, newsletters and email blasts.

Step 3: Your Target Dates

A variety of fun and exciting project topics are offered throughout the year. For each In-School Field Trip, we typically like to visit your school two times. Our first visit is called our Learn Day, when we not only reveal the fantastic LEGO challenge, we also teach real-world principles of design, including physics, motion, tension, compression and form. Our second visit is our Build Day, typically seven days after our Learn Day, and that’s when much anticipated LEGO magic happens.

Step 4a: Logistics. Planning your LEARN Day.

Learn Day gets us ready for Build Day. A Builder Bunch team member will come to your school and present the project to each participating class. During our visit we’ll also show the children how to access the webpage with our topic specific educational content. The ultimate goal is to get your students excited to learn about the topic.

On Learn Day our Builder Bunch team member introduces the facilitated project in your choice of three ways:  

 

 

 


Step 4b: Logistics. Planning your BUILD Day.

Build Day is when the LEGO® bricks come out. We’re prepared to be on campus the entire day, if you wish, taking your students through the building activities. Our schedule accommodates 45 minute Build sessions per participating class. Here is our preferred In-school Fieldtrip schedule

  • 9:00 – 9:45am Session #1
  • 9:50 – 10:35am Session #2
  • 10:40 – 11:25am Session #3
  • 11:30 – 12:15am Session #4
  • 12:20 – 1:05pm Session #5
  • 1:10 – 1:55pm Session #6

Does this proposed schedule look agreeable? 

 

 If no, please let us know what adjustments we’d need to make?   

We typically use spaces that have configurable tables and chairs, such as classrooms and media centers, however we can be flexible, as long as the room can comfortably accommodate 30 participants at a time.

Where will we hold our Build Sessions (cafeteria, gymnasium etc.)?

 

Will we have access the school’s WiFi during the event?


Step 5: Who’s Participating?

It’s crucial to know how many participants we’ll have and what their age groups will be. One Build Room, managed by one or two of our Master Builders, will be needed for every six groups or classes (30 Participants maximum each) rotating through.

What grade levels will be participating (ex. 3-5)?   

How many total classes will be participating?   

How many participants will be in your largest class?   

 How many participants will be in your smallest class?   

What is the total number of participants  for teh entire event(approximately)?   


Step 6: Pricing & Fees

Pricing is determined on a per-student basis by Community Partner status*

Community Partner Pricing Table

 

Participants           Community Partners              Non-Community Partners

100-199                      $10.00                                              $15.00

Step 7: Funding

There are a number of ways your In-School Field Trip can be funded. The most labor intensive is through an individual student participation fee, which Builder Bunch handles for you. We process all registrations online, regularly updating the school with our figures. We’ve also had several organizations choose to leverage various budget sources of their own to cover all or a portion of their expenses.

How do you anticipate your even will be funded? 

If OTHER, Please explain:

If all or part of your event is going to be funded by individual student participants, would you like all registrations to be handled by Builder Bunch online or would you like Builder Bunch to also supply payment envelopes as well?

If all or part of your field trip will be funded by organizational resources, please provide us with billing information:
