Brunswick County Uses LEGOS to Engage Students in Interdisciplinary Learning

LEGO_3Under the instruction of the Brunswick County Public School’s Gifted Education Teacher Mrs. Melissa Powers, Second through Fifth grade students are utilizing LEGO kits to expand their knowledge in the areas of Science, Mathematics, and Technology.

These hands-on activities allow the students to embark on the creation of simple machines. As they develop their knowledge base, students use add-on kits to explore Pneumatics and Renewable Energy as power sources. An introduction to robotics is also included and these guided activities result in the development of individual projects.Legos_2
