STEM & LEGO Education - Διερευνητική Μάθηση

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is the acronym used to group the academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The term is also used by the academic community when referring to education policy and school curricula to improve competitiveness in science and technological development.

The aim of this interdisciplinary approach is not to teach the aforementioned branches as separate and distinct courses, but through STEM methodology to be integrated into a coherent learning model based on real-world applications. Combining theory with practical application, the student comes closer to the needs of today’s society.

How do we prepare students for the future?

All teachers around the world have a fascinating – and vital – duty to shape students minds and prepare them for the future.
With the rapidly changing nature of work, this can prove to be a difficult task.

Recent studies report that almost 2 in 3 students in the classroom today will work in non-yet-existent jobs.
At the same time, studies show that probably 80% of future jobs will require science, technology, engineering and math skills, and that 71% of all new jobs at STEM will be in computer science.

80% of future jobs will require STEM skills

Students use their familiar LEGO® bricks to get in touch with fundamental principles and laws of Physics, Engineering and Mathematics. The pedagogical basis of the educational material is constructivism, which is the new proposal for the teaching of MIT professor Seymourt Papert (1928-2016).

Emphasizing problem-solving methodologies, students make practical use of their knowledge as they collaborate and understand abstract concepts through tangible constructions.

LEGO® Education’s comprehensive educational solutions provide fully structured lessons, worksheets for students as well as assessment opportunities, helping the teacher to arouse students’ interest and encourage them to think and apply their skills in realistic simulations and problems.
