EVANS, Ga. (WRDW) -- Bricks 4 Kidz is a summer camp in Evans that's putting a different spin on Legos.

Counselors use the Legos to teach campers principles of science, technology, engineering and math.

"We kinda hide it in. We sneak it in a bunch of projects and organized activities, so depending on the camp's week...it decides what activity we do," camp counselor Kaitlyn Shinault said.

Last week's theme was super heroes, and campers had the opportunity to create their very own comic books based on their Lego designs. Campers worked with motors and cables to create superheroes that would have the ability to spin and fly for their comics.

"Some of the kids took it a step further and really explored how the gears worked to make multiple mini figures fly at the same time," Shinault said.

Shinault said at Bricks 4 Kidz, they just want campers to learn and have fun at the same time.
