LEGO® Education Announces The 2022-2023 Ambassador Cohort 219

LEGO® Education Announces The 2022-2023 Ambassador Cohort


LEGO Education recognizes innovative educators from across the U.S. who are rethinking how students learn with hands-on STEAM learning

BILLUND, Denmark (November 3, 2022) LEGO® Education today announced the 2022-2023 cohort of its Ambassador Program, recognizing educators from across the U.S. who are leaders and advocates of learning through play in early learning through middle school.

The LEGO Education Ambassador Program is an inspiring group of individuals who lead by example as lifelong learners and continually look for ways to not only engage their students, but also deliver learning outcomes. The educators selected for the program share a passion for hands-on learning, while representing various backgrounds, skillsets, teaching experience, disciplines, district profiles, grade levels, and more. Each brings playful learning experiences into the classroom because they understand its impact in building confidence, resilience, and 21st century skills like problem-solving, collaboration, and critical thinking.

Through the program, educators connect and share ideas, experiences, and perspectives with other leaders in education at local and online events, on social media, and in the LEGO Education Community. As leaders in their schools, districts, and communities and with the support of their peers and LEGO Education, the Ambassadors can reach and inspire more educators and students to discover the joy in learning.

Educators apply annually for the LEGO Education Ambassador Program and are selected because they embody the values and mission of LEGO Education, are leaders and advocates of hands-on STEAM learning, and have demonstrated the impact of the LEGO Learning System in their classrooms. The 2022-2023 cohort includes returning members and welcomes many new educators, including classroom teachers, STEAM specialists, robotics instructors, and media specialists. These 80 educators represent 27 states across the U.S. and range from two to 35 or more years of teaching experience.

Congratulations to all the LEGO Education Ambassadors!!!!!!!!!!

This is awesome. Congratulations to those who got a chance to further their education and creativity through this position. I wish this were also available for Kenya (or a similar initiative) so that I could make my contribution.

I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of creative people and I look forward to the collaboration journey ahead through the awesome world of LEGO Education!
