Lego are for more than just free play. They are also educational tools to improve student learning.
Megan is a wonderfully engaging speaker and educator. After attending professional development lead by Megan, she facilitated and modeled several lessons in my special education classroom. The students and I had fun and meaningful experiences that helped me address and meet learning objectives in the classroom.” — Middle School Special Education Teacher, Wilson County School District
The BrickScholar’s programs offered our students the opportunity to utilize so many skills … from critical thinking and problem solving to team building, coding and communications. The projects and content aligned perfectly with our STREAM/STEAM initiative providing enrichment opportunities to our existing curriculum. We could not be more please with the program itself and our students. We can hardly wait for the next LEGO WeDo project to begin! — Technology Teacher, Cayla Walston Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School
What was the single most valuable thing you learned at the workshop?
I found working together to explore the project based learning valuable. My students will enjoy collaborating with each other, experimenting on ways to build our projects, and broaden their learning experiences. Learn by having fun!
