LEGO® Education Solutions provides the engaging, hands-on experiences learners need to explore core STEAM concepts and link them to real-life phenomenon. The LEGO programming tool sparks learners’ natural curiosity, encouraging them to develop essential communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical-thinking skills in a fun and exciting way. Learners employ tactile and flexible solutions as they learn to investigate problems and find possible solutions. They discover how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics affect and improve on their everyday life.

In addition, LEGO® Education Solutions brings a creative spirit to robotics clubs, coding programs, and maker spaces. Competitions are held during the year and Lego even holds the World Robot Olympiad, which is a global Mindstorms Robotics Competition.

Additional skills to be learned will be Microsoft Office, Programming, Python coding, Animation and App building – using Python and Unity. South Africa now has a coding Olympiad – a problem-solving contest for learners who can write code. The Olympiad aims to inspire learners to improve their coding skills.
