Activities for Home
Believe or not, “engineering” is not a scary word. We see engineering around us everyday – it’s in the computers we use, the cars we drive, and much more. There are many ways to help familiarize your child with engineering concepts through the use of Legos. One great way to start is to share the Lego experience with your kids at home.
Getting Involved in Schools
Using Legos to promote engineering concepts in schools is a fairly new idea, and like parents, teachers are also just starting to get the hang of it. Getting involved in your child's school curriculum is another good way to help your child become more familiar with Legos. Introduce Legos to teachers and see what they think! You could work together to start an after-school program or even integrate Legos into the class schedule.
