BILLUND, Denmark--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LEGO® Education announced today its new Early Learning solution, STEAM Park designed to spark preschoolers’ natural curiosity in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). Children work in groups of six with LEGO DUPLO® bricks to build an amusement park with rides and attractions designed to help them discover gears and ramps, experiment, and gain confidence with trial and error.
“We are happy to offer our new LEGO Education STEAM Park solution during a time when it is more important than ever for young children to discover what’s possible through science, technology, engineering, arts and math,” said Esben Stærk Jørgensen, president of LEGO Education. “STEAM Park helps children learn the formative 21st century skills including problem solving, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking which are needed to help them succeed in all subject areas throughout their education. We also know that with STEAM jobs predicted to grow at almost twice the rate of other job sectors, in just the next decade alone, exploring these skills now will help prepare all children for the jobs of tomorrow.”
The new set is accompanied by the LEGO Education STEAM Park Teacher Guide, which features eight STEAM-centric lessons created with insights from the latest research on STEAM in early learning and the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s science, math and technology guidelines. The LEGO Education Pinterest page also offers a collection of creative and playful preschool STEAM activities.
