5+ Machines and Mechanisms

Early science and design & technology

LEGO Education 5+ Machines & Mechanisms sets and activities offer an effective way to teach science

and design & technology concepts in early years classrooms. LEGO® DUPLO® models are easy to

work with. As children build and test their models, they explore the ways in which familiar objects work.

They experiment with concepts such as force and motion, balance, stability and buoyancy. These sets

tap into children’s natural curiosity about the world around them and encourage them to observe carefully

 and to think creatively, as well as to work together in a constructive, playful way.
