The LEGO Smart Student
All LEGO® products help build creativity skills.
In 1980, LEGO Education was created to further extend this concept. In addition to the creativity and critical-thinking skills required by all LEGO products, LEGO Education sought to help students learn to work in teams and make connections to key concepts taught in schools and real life.
Specialized sets and corresponding curriculum and activities were developed to help students learn science, technology, engineering, and math – and at the same time, gain the communication skills to last a lifetime.
Over the past 25+ years, LEGO Education has extended its mission worldwide to millions of students. The LEGO Education brand is synonymous with creativity, teamwork, critical thinking, and communication.
To be LEGO Smart is to excel at these things.
A LEGO Smart student can build with LEGO bricks. They solve problems creatively and excel at working with others and thinking critically.
They understand key science, technology, engineering, and math concepts and therefore do well in school and on high-stakes tests.
They go to college or trade schools and successfully complete engineering, science, and technology coursework. They are great at hands-on activities – they don’t just know it, they DO it.
The LEGO Smart concept permeates all sets, subjects, and age levels. All LEGO Education sets and bricks help students gain the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as a student and as an adult.
The value of a LEGO Education experience is tied to all sets and bricks. Teachers and students who are LEGO Smart can see from a small pile of bulk elements and corresponding activities that all LEGO Education products combine for a common goal: to foster creativity, cooperation, critical thinking, and teamwork skills in students of all ages.
LEGO Smart transcends age and subject area. To be LEGO Smart is to be a successful student and citizen and a contributing member of the global society.
