Create More "Aha!" Moments

LEGO Education 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 Simple Machines use LEGO® bricks and creative activities to make interactive, exploration-based learning easier than ever to achieve.

Exploring real-world tasks with a hands-on approach, Simple Machines provides students in grades 3–5 with a deeper understanding of science and engineering concepts and process through a curriculum activity pack and a set of 204 bricks and elements. Designed with collaboration in mind, the set supports two students as it engages them in problem-solving activities - including additional Maker lessons available online - that will motivate them to delve into the concepts of energy, balance, and mechanics, all while encouraging investigation skills.
