Machines & Mechanisms for Primary School

Machines & Mechanisms enable primary school pupils to discover how the real world works. With Machines & Mechanisms, pupils get an in-depth understanding of mechanical and structural principles built into everyday machines. By building, designing, and testing solutions, pupils work as young scientists and engineers, all while honing design technology, science, and maths skills. We support teachers by providing easy-to-use, age-appropriate, hands-on materials along with guided lessons that tick technology and science curriculum boxes.

Pupils can observe and investigate simple machines. Discover mechanical principles by exploring, investigating, and solving tasks related to mechanical principles as well as learn about energy, balance, buoyancy, and much more.


Machines and Mechanisms for Secondary School

LEGO Education Machines & Mechanisms gives you the tools and activities to teach about real-world technology and engineering problems and solutions. Build and explore machines and mechanisms, investigate motorised machines, capture wind and study gearing mechanisms. This range of tools takes the learning out of the books and places it directly into pupils’ hands. We help you get started quickly with easy-to-use activities, guidance and real-world inspiration that bridges technology and science textbooks.

  • Pupils design and observe the behaviour of their models.
  • They reflect and re-design the model functionality and present their findings.
  • Pupils build the models together, each focusing on their part of the model, strengthening their 21st-century skills in collaboration and communication.
