LEGO FOR SCHOOLS
Introducing LEGO® Education
LEGO® Education has been working alongside teachers to reimagine the way we learn for over 40 years. With solutions designed for all school ages, we can provide schools with assets that help educators turn students into life-long learners and develop the skills they need for the future of work.
Why LEGO Education?
One of the most recognised brands on the planet, students and educators alike struggle to keep their hands off our LEGO! Children see LEGO Education as a toy, which means teachers have the ultimate tool to deliver engaging learning activities through purposeful play whilst also being aligned with the National Curriculum.
LEGO Education’s ethos is built around providing future generations with the transferable skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration that will make them valuable members of the 21st century workforce and aligns with the eight fundamental skills of the Skills Builder Universal Framework.
A true STEM solution
Every lesson is designed to help pupils develop a full range of STEM skills, using familiar LEGO building elements and minifigures to help connect abstract concepts to real-life experiences.
Built-in scaffolding for easy adoption
Easy implementation in the classroom and across the school, along with the support of built-in scaffolding and professional development, allows teachers to focus on their pupils and drive successful learning outcomes.
A toolbox to unlock unlimited possibilities

Engage primary students in hands-on investigation of STEM concepts while contributing to literacy, maths and social-emotional development
Challenge middle school students to apply scientific inquiry skills to provide evidence of the change in an object's motion based on its force and mass
Combining LEGO elements, easy-to-use hardware and intuitive coding experience, SPIKE Prime builds STEM confidence in secondary school students
How does it work?
The LEGO Learning System provides educators with the scaffolding they need to build fun and engaging lessons targeting STEAM subjects, even for those teachers who don’t specialise in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art or Maths.
Opportunities to connect knowledge gained from different subjects are clearly signposted throughout over 40 lesson plans utilising the 5E Model, helping to reinforce learning outcomes while fostering teamwork, communication and creativity.
How does this support teachers?
With so many students learning in either virtual or hybrid settings, finding opportunities for playful, hands-on experiences is vital.
LEGO Education provides teachers with the assessment tools, lesson plans, and professional development they need to make learning inspiring, engaging and practical.
LEGO offers personalised professional development designed to inspire and engage as you learn, practice and master competencies to facilitate playful, hands-on STEM learning for maximum impact on student outcomes. Experience lessons from a students’ perspective, master classroom management, then explore best practices in classroom implementation.
