Create More "Aha!" Moments

LEGO Education Early Simple Machines

Teachers know that hands-on learning engages students at every level, sparks creativity, develops critical thinking skills, ignites career possibilities — and is just plain fun! LEGO® Education Machines & Mechanisms sets use LEGO® bricks and creative activities to make interactive, exploration-based learning easier than ever to achieve.

Designed to help young students begin to understand basic real-world science concepts and the world around them, Early Simple Machines is a two-student set for grades K–2 and consists of a curriculum activity pack and 102 DUPLO® bricks and elements. With the addition of fun plastic eyes, sails, scales, and wings, Early Simple Machines lets kids explore mechanical principles as they learn collaboration and problem-solving skills.
