The Builder Bunch formula begins with us learning about you. The "discovery process" ensures we are tailoring our programs to meet your specific need and interest each time. There is no obligation at this point. We will simply use this information to ensure we’ve presented you with a proposal that best fits your "STEAM-based" need. Each of the easy steps below reflects our years of experience in doing just that. LET'S BUILD!

Our second visit is our Build Day, typically seven days after our Learn Day, and that’s when much anticipated LEGO magic happens.

Step 4: Onsite Logistics
LEARN Day Logistics
Learn Day is like an educational Pep Rally 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 members can introduce the program in one of the three ways below:
A. (Multiple) 15-Minute Mini-Assemblies with each grade level rotating through. (most fun and effective)
B. (1) 20-Minute Assembly Presentation to all participating students.
C. Access to our online prep videos for teachers to present during class.
What is your preferred LEARN Day delivery method from above? (required)
BUILD Day Logistics
Build Day is when the LEGO® bricks come out. We’re prepared to be on campus the entire day taking your students through the building activities. Our schedule accommodates 45-50 minute sessions per participating class. Our preferred In-school Field Trip schedule is below:

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. Builder Bunch will manage/process all registrations online; regularly updating the school with the registration status. We have 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 that your event will be funded? (required)
