LEGO® Education school solutions enable educators to cover a wide range of curriculum targets within science, technology, engineering and maths in a fun, hands-on and engaging way Edutech and Lego Education’s partnership in the Middle East is designed to help students do just this. Lego Education’s Mindstorm and Wedo solutions are designed to stimulate children’s creativity, problem-solving and team-working skills. Learning by making is the foundation of the Lego Education portfolio.Early Learning
Machines & Mechanisms
The sets in this range help teachers to capitalize on youngsters natural curiosity and enthusiasm about the world around them. We provide the tools and design the tasks for exploration and experimentation, so that teachers can introduce the basics and let children try out their own ideas.
From 5 years : Early Simple Machines
Children explore objects in the world around them, and build and play with models that help them to understand the movement of familiar things. They experiment with the concepts of balance, stability, buoyancy and much more.
From 8 years : Simple & Powered Machines
Children deepen their understanding of how forces affect motion and explore concepts of energy.They build more complex mechanisms and use them to make accurate observations, measurements and records; and to design their own solutions.
LEGO® Education WeDo™ - from 7 yearsStudents aged 7 to 11+ get a head start on simple robotics with this concept. They build models, attach sensors and motors that are plugged into a computer, and configure behaviours using a simple programming tool. The activity pack is divided into four themes: Amazing Mechanisms, Wild Animals, Play Soccer and Adventure Stories. It covers topics within science, technology, mathematics and language.
LEGO® MINDSTORMS Education – from 8 years Students aged 8 to 16+ learn to design, program and control fully-functional models. They use software to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions for a variety of life-like robotic behaviours. And they learn to collect and analyse data from sensors, using data logging functionalities embedded in the software. Activity packs are developed by Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Academy and provide a series of real-life activities, covering topics within science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
"The Oman Ministry of Higher Education is committed to introducing innovative education techniques to create a whole new learning experience for students. We have selected Edutech to implement the new system for their extensive experience in the industry coupled with the impressive high technology learning tools, which best suited our requirements. As Oman progresses towards adopting eLearning in all major educational endeavors, our partnership with Edutech will aid us in helping students acclimatize to the fast-changing technologies of the world.
