LEGO® initiatives to improve #STEM Education
In the US, LEGO® is working with National Instruments to change the way that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) concepts are taught in classrooms.
Ann Rivet, an associate professor of science education at Teachers College at Columbia University, is quoted in the article:
“Just knowing a lot of science information doesn’t provide that kind of thinking about how to use that information in new situations,” she says. “However, when you engage the students in the actual act of problem solving and hands-on activities where they’re connecting what they’re learning and how they’re doing it with what they want to know, the resulting understanding is much more robust.”
Absolutely. BRICKS 4 KIDZ® programs are designed with the same philosophy. They combine the STEM concepts with hands-on model building sessions to engage the students and embed the learning. If you’d like to know more about how this can be done in your school, feel free to get in touch.
