WHAT DOES THE BRICK CLUB DO?:

Each month members will meet and learn about new engineering methods to construct Brick MOCs (My Own Creations). Each meeting will comprise of a theme, a building method, and a challenge (group or individual). These builds will encourage creativity and show various strategies in art (mosaics), lighting, scale, and motion. There is "free build" time, but there is also a competitive component. We learn by challenging each other.

Members are welcome to bring their own bricks from home to use, or use those provided in our club collection. Bricks from home must be brought in a resealable labeled container. There is no guarantee that 100% of the bricks will make it back home; this is the responsibility of the student member. Bricks from the club collection will stay at school so members will not bring home their creations.
