The hands-on learning approach is about providing students with opportunities to experiment with their surroundings as a form of problem solving through coding. It is about creativity and collaboration, motivation and self-direction. It is about improvisation and discovery, and playful learning experiences with real-world relevance. We are requesting two LEGO Coding Express kits. The unique combination of building with the familiar LEGO bricks, using easy-to-use coding software and engaging curriculum relevant STEM challenges, makes coding fun and relevant for elementary and middle school students. Basically, everything you need to help every student to succeed at STEM through coding. We want to expose students to coding as it will teach them logical thinking and reasoning, and encourage different methods of communication. Learning to code with this product will build on a variety of skills in the classroom. It will increase cognitive skills through problem solving and flexible thinking, build effective strategies, follow rules; emotional skills, for self confidence, self control and refection, perseverance, understanding, expressing, and regulating emotions; social skills for collaboration and communication, understanding perspectives; creative skills by using representations, making new associations, transformation of new ideas and use of symbols; physical skills for balance, movement and spatial understanding. Coding with this system is a hands-on learning approach to providing the students with opportunities to experiment with their surroundings as a form of problem solving. It is about creativity and collaboration, motivation and self-direction. It is about improvisation and discovery, and playful learning experiences with real-world relevance.They haven't been exposed to the world of coding and they have exhibited an interest in early STEM skills
