Aimed at science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM), children work in groups of six to build an amusement park with LEGO Education STEAM Park.
They can construct an amusement park with attractions and rides which helps the youngsters find out about gears and ramps by experimentation, trial and error.
“We are happy to offer our new LEGO Education STEAM Park solution during a time when it is more important than ever for young children to discover what’s possible through science, technology, engineering, arts and math,” said Esben Stærk Jørgensen, president of LEGO Education, reported Business Wire.
“STEAM Park helps children learn the formative 21st century skills including problem solving, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking which are needed to help them succeed in all subject areas throughout their education,” Jørgensen added.
“We also know that with STEAM jobs predicted to grow at almost twice the rate of other job sectors, in just the next decade alone, exploring these skills now will help prepare all children for the jobs of tomorrow.”
LEGO Education builds on children’s inquisitiveness
Children are naturally curious and keen to explore the world around them. By using LEGO bricks, the youngsters can attempt to answer questions such as: What happens if I roll the car down the ramp? What if I use a ball instead? How can I make a chain reaction?
These types of skills lay the foundation for the development of children’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) skills.
The LEGO Education STEAM Park solution allows children to solve problems in a fun and engaging way using cause and effect, observation, role play and collaboration.
The educational set is accompanied by the LEGO Education STEAM Park Teacher Guide, which has eight STEAM-focused lessons created with the latest research on STEAM in early learning and the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s science, maths and technology guidelines.
