Machines & Mechanisms | LEGO Education Academy

We deliver training that is not only playful and engaging, but gives educators confidence to leave the training saying, "I can do this. I can apply this in my teaching."

The training will enable teachers to:

  • Implement and utilize LEGO® Education solutions in day-to-day teaching
  • Align the use of the material to curriculum standards
  • Create lesson plans according our 4C approach to learning
  • Understand how LEGO Education resources facilitate students’ learning
A full-day course consists of the following key elements:
  • Hands-on with the materials within the first 10 minutes
  • Two-thirds of the course includes hands-on activities
  • One-third of the course includes presentation and discussion
  • Curriculum-relevant coursework
  • Lesson planning
  • 7 hours of training, including breaks 

Led by a certified LEGO® Education Academy trainer, we’ll equip you with a strong understanding of how to use LEGO Education methodology to facilitate STEM learning, using the Early Simple Machines program content. In this training course we will be including a good focus on how you as a teacher can cover different STEM areas and at the same time work with 21st century skills like problem solving, flexibility, critical thinking, creativity and perseverance in a collaborative environment.

It will be facilitated through fun and engaging training experiences that will give you a fundamental introduction to the LEGO Education approach to learning and what we mean by Learning through Play. You will walk away with a many ideas on how to use Early Simple Machines in your classroom. To support you in succeeding, we will provide time and guidance to plan your first lessons using Early Simple Machines teaching material and approach to learning. By the end of the program, you will be fully prepared to make an inspiring and engaging STEM learning experience for all the students in your class.

Learning outcomes:

  • Help your students to behave like young scientists and engineers with an introduction to Early Simple Machines
