LEGO Ed, NASA Collaborate on Free Digital STEAM Learning Series

LEGO Education and NASA have come together to create “Build to Launch: A STEAM Exploration Series,” a new interactive learning series scheduled to launch in September.

According to LEGO Education, the series “is designed to spark student curiosity and increase engagement in STEAM through the upcoming Artemis I mission. The 10-week series includes interactive episodes and open-ended prompts grouped into three learning themes aligned with the mission: Getting to Space, Testing and Transport and Working in Space.”

The lessons combine digital lessons with interactivity and hands-on components. For interactivity, students can submit questions answered by NASA and animated LEGO figures. For hands-on learning: “Open-ended prompts encourage student creativity and engagement through hands-on learning, while offering flexibility for teachers,” according to LEGO Education.

A Teacher Resource Guide will also be available.

Further details can be found on the LEGO Education site.
