LEGO® Education BricQ Motion FAQs
What is BricQ Motion?
LEGO® Education BricQ Motion is an engaging introductory hands-on STEAM solution that encourages elementary and secondary school students to discover physical science in action. It engages students in STEAM learning as they experiment with forces, motion, and interactions in the context of sports. They'll use special elements like gears, levers, axles, and pulleys to build cool creations as they actively engage in learning physical science.
BricQ Motion provides easy, hands-on learning experiences that spark cool “aha” moments as students set bricks in motion. With classroom sets and Personal Learning Kits, it's flexible to use in both classroom and remote environments and doesn't require any technology.
To help educators achieve the best possible learning outcomes, BricQ Motion is accompanied by a comprehensive professional development program.
What are the LEGO Education BricQ Motion products?
BricQ Motion offers two classroom sets for elementary and secondary education:
- 45401 LEGO Education BricQ Motion Essential Set

What's the target age group?
Curriculum standards vary from country to country, so the target age group will vary based on region.
Generally, BricQ Motion Essential is designed for lower and upper elementary school students (ages 6+), while BricQ Motion Prime is designed for secondary school students (ages 10+).
What's the recommended student to classroom set ratio?
In a classroom setting, we recommend one set for every two students in a classroom setting. One BricQ Motion classroom set contains enough building elements and printed building instructions for two students to complete all of the lessons presented in the STEAM learning units.
How many elements does each set contain?
The BricQ Motion Essential Set includes 523 LEGO® brick elements. The BricQ Motion Prime Set includes 562 LEGO Technic™ and brick elements.

Each BricQ Motion set includes one pack of replacement elements, which contains duplicates of the most commonly lost parts.
Additional replacement elements can be ordered from LEGO.com.
How much learning material is included with the BricQ Motion sets?
The BricQ Motion Essential Set includes one curriculum unit for lower elementary school students and one for upper elementary students. The BricQ Motion Prime Set includes one curriculum unit for secondary students.
Each curriculum unit includes enough teaching resources and lesson plan content to provide 6-10 hours of classroom instruction.

Is professional development available for BricQ Motion?
Yes. BricQ Motion is supported by a comprehensive professional development program. Please visit education.lego.com/en-us/professional-development for more details.
Does BricQ Motion offer hybrid learning opportunities?
Yes. BricQ Motion offers flexible hybrid learning extensions. This makes it easy to extend the BricQ Motion experience to remote environments so students can continue their learning outside of the classroom.
The Personal Learning Kits have been designed especially for this purpose. When used in combination with the classroom sets, the Personal Learning Kits reinforce in-class learning outcomes by supporting ongoing exploration outside of the classroom.
Personal Learning Kits available:
- 2000471 LEGO® Education BricQ Motion Essential Personal Learning Kit
- 2000470 LEGO Education BricQ Motion Prime Personal Learning Kit
What is a Personal Learning Kit?
The Personal Learning Kits are small sets of LEGO elements designed for 1:1 student use. They enable educators to continue delivering STEAM lessons while driving strong learning outcomes in a hybrid learning environment, whether it's in a physically distanced classroom or at home.
The BricQ Motion sets can be combined with the Personal Learning Kits and additional at-home lesson plans to extend and consolidate students' in-class learning and deepen their understanding of forces, motion, and interactions.
How much hybrid learning material is available for BricQ Motion?
When used in combination with the BricQ Motion Classroom Sets, there are three 45-minute hybrid learning extensions per unit, which students can use to continue their learning at home.
What is the recommended student to Personal Learning Kit ratio?
One Personal Learning Kit contains enough building elements for one student to complete the hybrid learning lessons. For an optimal hybrid learning experience, we recommend one Personal Learning Kit per student. The classroom sets are designed for a 1:2 ratio.
As an example, a single classroom with 20 students will need 10 classroom sets and 20 Personal Learning Kits. If the classroom sets are being shared among three different classes of 20 students each, 10 classroom sets and 60 Personal Learning Kits will be needed.
How are the Personal Learning Kits used?
The Personal Learning Kits are intended to reinforce students' in-class BricQ Motion learning outcomes in alternative settings (e.g., at home). Each student should be assigned their own Personal Learning Kit. This will allow them to work individually with a brick set and the hybrid learning lessons. The Personal Learning Kits are an excellent way to support hands-on STEAM learning beyond the classroom.
