In these sessions, students work in teams of 2 to build and code a theme park ride using the new LEGO® Learning System.
Getech's LEGO Education trainers are certified LEGO trainers, who will come to your school to guide students through a scenario to solve a problem and discuss the importance of engineering jobs in the future.
Scenario: Maria, Daniel, Sofie and Leo (LEGO Characters) are at a theme park today and they want to ride on the Ferris Wheel together. However, it's not stopping to let them on! Work as a team of engineers to build and code a working Ferris Wheel ensuring it's accessible for all of them to ride!
By using LEGO in the classroom, students can develop problem-solving skills, enhance creativity, and improve communication and collaboration. The LEGO characters used have different abilities/disabilities which helps promote diversity and inclusion.
