LEGO Education is a unit of the company that deals with tools that enable teachers to integrate the popular construction toys in science, technology, coding and art lessons. With the COVID pandemic almost over, the company has announced a modernized selection to focus on hybrid and virtual teaching.
The harvest of resources for this year̵7;s classrooms focuses on lessons and software that can be used both personally and remotely. The education line, which is divided into sets designed for different ages, even includes a “homeschool bundle” with motorized elements that can be coded via an iOS or Android app. The SPIKE and SPIKE Prime sets are aimed at more experienced builders in the intermediate stage and beyond.
This year, LEGO Education focuses on providing tools and guides to teachers who provide some or all of their instruction online. There is also a forum for teachers to help each other with tips and ideas. But if you want your child to use one of these custom-made LEGO Education sets, you better hope that your school is well-funded: They are even more expensive than LEGO’s typical advanced sets.
