Build Students' Skills for Any Challenge
Hands-on LEGO® Learning is a universal language and LEGO® Education solutions for secondary school grow with students as they engage at every level, providing hands-on experiences that stimulate communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking skills. When students learn with LEGO® bricks, coding tools, and supporting lesson plans for teachers, they ignite their natural curiosity and sharpen their scientific inquiry, engineering design, and data analysis skills — so they can succeed in their STEM classes today and realize their full potential as digital citizens and leaders tomorrow.
LEGO Education also brings this creative spirit to robotics clubs, coding programs, and maker spaces. With fun new Maker activities, LEGO Education makes the joy of discovery even more accessible.
LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3
Simple & Powered
High School, EV3 and MicroPython!
For grades 7-12, EV3 engages and challenges students to practice STEM and robotics skills in a “near real world” environment, preparing them for college and career in the technology infused world. Students and teachers can leverage the advanced features and functionality of EV3 along with the STEM, robotics and Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) lessons to build job specific skills with focus on Computer Science, Engineering and specific areas of CTE/vocational education such as Manufacturing, Information Technology and Pre-Engineering. The new EV3 MicroPython programming language, now standard for all EV3 high school content, is an optimized version of Python for micro-controllers and enables students to acquire skills directly applicable to real-world Python programming.
21st Century Lessons
LEGO Learning Solutions are designed to be flexible, cross-curriculum tools that ignite curiosity and integrate easily into your classroom. Our standards-aligned lesson plans provide a variety of learning experiences, including guided learning and problem-solving lessons, that relate directly back to students’ real-life questions and observations. Assessment options built in to the lessons help make sure that assessment happens during learning, not after.
Developed in collaboration with university leaders and educators in the classroom — and tested by teachers! — LEGO Education’s lesson plans are aligned to NGSS and Common Core State Standards in Language, Literacy, and Math and provide more than 100 lessons and activities across multiple STEM/STEAM subjects and learning levels.
With LEGO Education’s curriculum tools and sets, secondary students:
- Use different reasoning approaches to evaluate evidence and develop theories
- Create and work with data to solve problems and draw conclusions
- Learn to identify problems and use appropriate tools to find and communicate solutions
- Refine their use of science and engineering practices to solve problems, hone ideas, and evaluate solutions
LEGO Education Academy wants every teacher to succeed using our solutions in the classroom by providing confidence-building, engaging, and playful training.
In sessions targeted to specific LEGO Education solutions, certified trainers coach educators on how to integrate LEGO solutions into their existing STEM curriculum, offer the opportunity to experience lessons from a student perspective, and give teachers the tools they need to apply the LEGO Education hands-on learning philosophy to their lesson plans.
Building STEM skills in Competitions
Competitions and showcases are a highly motivating and engaging way for students of all age groups to develop and display their skills in Science & Technology. Working as a team, students cooperate, collaborate and build the teamwork skills needed for success in a changing workforce.
