Lego Engineering 

Getting started with LEGO materials in the classroom with young children can be exciting and challenging. LEGO materials are a great platform for introducing young children (ages 5 - 9) to science and engineering concepts rather than just playing. In LEGO Engineering, students will try and accomplish specific tasks and solve problems. LEGO lets kids exercise creativity and learn some fundamentals of engineering.
