Funding Solutions at your Fingertips
As part of our commitment to working with educational entities, we have gathered various funding solutions for you to consider as you look to fund LEGO® Education solutions for your school or district.
Title I, Part A Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies (LEAs)
In order to ensure equitable opportunities for all students, educational solutions must be robust enough to engage all type of learners. Through LEGO® Education solutions, students will be provided concrete, hands-on experiences and afford teachers an innovative way to present STEAM content and skills. LEGO Education solutions also engage in multidisciplinary thinking as they create explicit dialogue around science, computer science, literacy, and mathematics.
Research shows that students learn best when learning is active, when they are engaged in hands-on lessons and activities and are involved in what they are learning. When students use all of their senses, it helps the brain create pathways that make it easier to retain information. LEGO Education is adequately prepared to support high-quality teaching and learning practices to support the expert instruction needed for all students to be successful in their respective grade levels and for the future.
Career and Technical Education (Perkins)
LEGO Education solutions provide relevant and real-word application for CTE career pathways such as business, technology, engineering, marketing, and many more. Through the use of LEGO Education solutions, students will have authentic opportunities to participate in real simulations while increasing content knowledge and developing soft skills to continuously refine their employability to be career and workforce ready in the 21st century
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
Special education is an integral part of the total educational enterprise, not a separate order. In any school system, special education is a means of enlarging the capacity of the system to serve the educational needs of all children. LEGO Education solutions provide unique learning experiences to support all learners. In addition, LEGO Education solutions provide a safe, non-threatening entry point for all students to engage in learning through LEGO bricks. They also support social and emotional learning, thus having the potential to improve social interactions and self-regulation.
