Introducing the 2024 LEGO® Education Ambassadors

Published

Meet the educators across the U.S. who are reimagining the way students learn through the power of play.

We are so excited to announce the 2024 cohort of our U.S. Ambassador Program, recognizing educators nationwide who are leaders and advocates of teaching students through the power of play. LEGO Education Ambassadors are changemakers in early learning through middle school education inspiring and preparing students for their future with hands-on LEGO Education learning experiences. This year’s cohort of 78 educators represent 25 states across the U.S. and range from 3 to 32 years of teaching experience.

The 2024 cohort includes many new and returning educators, including classroom teachers, STEAM specialists, robotics instructors, and media specialists. Each year educators apply and are selected for the program because they exemplify 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.

Educators find community with peers

The Ambassador community fosters learning where educators connect and share ideas, experiences and perspectives 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.

“Hands-on learning is the cornerstone of student engagement,” says new Ambassador Brian Briggs, Director of Technology for Washington Unified School District in West Sacramento, California. “Students will want to come to school daily if there is positive engagement and a sense of belonging, which is why I’m excited to collaborate with others in the program and create learning experiences that make our students go WOW!”

Returning Ambassador and 5th grade Math and Science Teacher Angela Gier says, “As a LEGO Education Ambassador, I’ve been able to open doors of opportunity for my students and co-workers in their diverse communities.” Gier, who teaches at Maple Lawn Elementary in Dallas, Texas, values the community and inspiration she’s found through the program. “I am excited to continue to enhance my teaching practices and share with my students all the new ways to experience endless possibilities and opportunities for creativity, innovation, and learning with LEGO Education,” she added.
