As the pace of technology accelerates, the need to develop students’ 21st century skills continue to grow. Education systems around the world have started to address this need, but the disruption of the past year has caused many to realize that incremental change isn’t enough. Now is the time to rethink learning at a more fundamental level. At LEGO® Education we believe the answer lies in the power of purposeful play. Purposeful play, like other project-based learning pedagogies, has been shown to increase student learning outcomes, and at the same time foster a love of learning.This highly desirable dual outcome has driven LEGO Education to create the LEGO® Learning System – a systemic approach to STEAM learning aimed at developing the whole child, from early primary through secondary school. The system offers a wide range of interconnected solutions that work seamlessly together, unlocking unlimited STEAM learning possibilities that help students better understand and positively impact the world around them. As part of the new system, we are thrilled to introduce LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential, a solution designed to ignite elementary school students’ passion for STEAM learning through playful problem-solving and storytelling and provide a foundational pathway to SPIKE™ Prime curricula.The past 40 years have led us to the LEGO Learning System: A holistic system of learning experiences that truly delights teachers and students alike, where knowledge grows, skills flourish and students fall in love with learning. Happy building,Esben StærkPresident of LEGO EducationNow Is the Time to Rethink Learning3

Building Confident Lifelong Learners In an everchanging world where the pace of technological change means most younger students are preparing for jobs that don’t exist yet, the ultimate goal for LEGO® Education is to future-proof students’ skillsand inspire them to become confident, lifelong learners. In order to achieve this goal, educators must meet students where they are, challenge them appropriately and allowthem the opportunities to experience meaningful failures they can learn from. LEGO Education helps students by encouraging hands-on experimentation and applying STEAM knowledge to solve real-world problems. This experimentation and problem-solving builds students’ confidence, the desire to keep trying new things and ultimately achieve more than they ever thought possible.A Learning Journey with LEGO® Education In order to prepare students, we must go beyond foundational skills and focus on development of the whole child. 21st century skills likecommunication, collaboration, problem-solving and creativity are among the most critical skills for participation in the workforce of the future.Learning doesn’t end with a single lesson, but is the result of a lifelong journey, which is why LEGO Education offers learning experiences that provide a way for students to naturally discover and engage in purposeful play. Purposefulplay is rooted in pedagogical approaches such as project-based learning, which are known to increase student learning outcomes and foster a love of learningA Toolbox to Unlock Unlimited PossibilitiesThe LEGO® Learning System is a toolbox of interconnected solutions that work seamlessly together, unlocking unlimited STEAM learning possibilities. The scalable system is easy to implement at the classroom, school, or district level and provides an integrated continuum of learning that builds year over year.

SFIRST® and LEGO® Education Tackle COVID-19 Challenges with Remote Event HubWe asked Kim Wierman, Director of FI RST® LEGO® League at FIRST, how the program is converting to remote events in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how its ensured that students can still participate in an immersive experience.Participating in a competition is a very important (and fun!) part of FIRST® LEGO® League. Students in our program not only get to demonstrate their hard work, but also get to celebrate their accomplishments and interact with other participants in an energized environment. Our events play an important role, but the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to creatively reimagine what a FIRST LEGO League competition looks like in a hybrid or remote set-up. We have worked hard to recreate important aspects of the competition facilitated through a new platform – the FIRST Remote Event Hub presented by LEGO Education and the LEGO Foundation – that allows the teams to upload their Robot Game matches for referees to review and present their Innovation Project and Robot Design in an online judging session. We’ve also factored in the facilitation of opening and closing ceremonies, so the recognition moments can be celebrated among teams and their families. This new platform retains important educational elements of the program while keeping students and volunteers safe. Prior to any competition or judging, teams are still able to collaborate online, in-person in small groups where circumstances allow, or in a hybrid situation. The guided materials for students and their coaches are designed for teams divided into smaller groups to complete activities, which allows for cleaning materials before passing them to the next group to use. In addition, we’ve created activities that can be done at home to facilitate family engagement in what the students are working on. Besides guidance on social distancing and good hygiene in handling of materials, our stringent youth protection practices extend to creating a safe online environment. Top child safety and data protection experts from both FIRST and the LEGO Group have collaborated in the creation of the Remote Event Hub.The 2021/22 Season has just started. Now is a great time to join!Learn more at FIRSTLEGOleague.orgSPIKE™ PrimeLEGOeducation.com

UNIT PLAN, SECONDARYScience of SportsIn this unit, your students apply their scientific inquiry skills as they provide evidence on the change in an object’s motion based upon its force and mass. Your students will practice their application of Newton’s laws to design, develop and optimize a solution that involves the collision of two objects. Your students strengthen their oral communication skills as they present and analyze solutions in collaborative discussions.CORE SETLEGO® Education BricQ Motion Prime Set45400This 562-piece set includes an extensive selection of special elements such as gears, wheels, balls, weights and pneumatics, 4 minifigures and more, while color-coded sorting trays ease the building process and make tidying up at the end of class quick and efficient. Replacement elements are also included, as well as printed building instructions with inspirational ideas that help students discover physical science in action.KEY LEARNING VALUES Investigate push and pull forces and use evidence to solve problems. Apply scientific inquiry skills to show how the forces acting on an object can change its motion.
