Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Through LEGO

My students need LEGO kits to provide hands-on learning opportunities to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

My Students

For many of the students, our classroom is the safest and most comforting place to be due to rough living situations. I have 20 students who come from generally lower socioeconomic areas and living situations. There are 10 native Spanish and 10 native English speakers in this class. These students are hardworking, determined, and curious learners.

My students are 2nd graders in the Dual Language program at our Title I school (meaning curriculum is presented and explored in Spanish 80% of the day).

The school is located in a low socioeconomic area making it difficult for students and families to access quality school supplies and resources.

My Project

Many 2nd grade students learn best through real-life experience. Academic LEGO sets allow students to move and understand science, engineering, and technology in a way that many of them are familiar with. Because the school is classified as Title I (low income), these students would not normally have access to this level of STEM investigation and exploration.

These LEGO academic kits allow students to learn about engineering and designing in a hands-on and applicable way.

LEGO provides students with a more comfortable and fun way to learn STEM curriculum. The more fun a classroom learning experience is, the more likely students will dive into the subject and take an interest.
