The Ultimate Makerspace Starts with Curiosity

LEGO Education. Curiosity Builds

A makerspace is a creative prototyping workspace where makers gather to share knowledge, experiment, create, tinker and learn. LEGO® Education Maker empowers every student, at all grade levels, to follow their curiosity wherever it leads them, in a safe, inspiring, and instantly accessible environment. The LEGO® brick, with its simple and intuitive building system, is the perfect prototyping tool. Students start exploring with a handful of LEGO bricks and begin to create, test, build and rebuild. As they work toward their ultimate goal, they continuously modify, retest and rebuild.

5 Ideas to Making a Great Makerspace

You can make a makerspace anywhere with a simple collection of materials on a classroom shelf, in a cart, or even organized on a LEGO® baseplate. Let our guide help you design the right makerspace for your classroom needs and create ways to engage your students in out-of-the-box ideas as well as real-world problem solving.

Kids are motivated and inspired to learn when they are using learning to make something they care about. A teacher’s most important role is to provide them with the tools and freedom to make those things.
