You know the value of encouraging creativity, collaboration and critical thinking in the classroom. As you think about how to do that, you might be looking at LEGO® Education STEAM solutions to help learners build resilience and confidence in learning through the power of purposeful play. And now you need to explore funding opportunities to bring our solutions to your district or classroom. Let’s explore options together.


Why LEGO® Education?

Our K-12 hands-on solutions are used all over the world in various learning environments. We offer robust and engaging teaching and learning tools that transcend disciplines and provide students with authentic inquiry-based learning experiences. They afford students with the opportunity to acquire content knowledge while developing critical 21st Century and STEAM skills, in both scaffolded and open learning environments.

Funding Opportunities

We have worked with state and local education agencies, and even individual schools and classrooms to create unique solutions and implementation plans to meet their educational needs, goals, and objectives to maximize student and teacher outcomes.

As part of this commitment, we have gathered various funding solutions for you to consider. Here are six ways to fund LEGO Education solutions for your school or district.

Title I, Part A: Improving Basic Programs, Operated by Local Educational Agencies (LEAs)
To ensure equitable opportunities for all students, educational solutions must be robust enough to engage all type of learners. Through LEGO® Education solutions, students will be provided concrete, hands-on experiences and afford teachers an innovative way to present STEAM content and skills. LEGO Education solutions also engage in multidisciplinary thinking as they create explicit dialogue around science, computer science, literacy, and mathematics.

Career and Technical Education (Perkins)
LEGO Education solutions provide relevant and real-word application for CTE career pathways such as business, technology, engineering, marketing, and many more. Through the use of LEGO Education solutions, students will have authentic opportunities to participate in real simulations while increasing content knowledge and developing soft skills to continuously refine their employability to be career and workforce ready in the 21st century.

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
Special education is an integral part of the total educational enterprise, not a separate order. In any school system, special education is a means of enlarging the capacity of the system to serve the educational needs of all children. LEGO Education solutions provide unique learning experiences to support all learners. In addition, LEGO Education solutions provide a safe, non-threatening entry point for all students to engage in learning through LEGO bricks. They also support social and emotional learning, thus having the potential to improve social interactions and self-regulation.

Title II, Supporting Effective Instruction
One of the most influential elements in a student’s education is their teacher. To provide the best educational opportunities for students, we must invest in our human capital—teachers and staff who directly engage with students. LEGO Education provides comprehensive professional learning opportunities to engage with all types of adult learners. Moreover, LEGO Education professional learning opportunities differentiate types of support needed, modalities engaged, and instructional strategies deployed. LEGO Education provides job-embedded, ongoing professional learning opportunities for educators to ensure sustainability and continuous professional growth.

ESSER Funding
Research show that students learn best when learning is active, when they are engaged in hands-on lessons and activities and involved in what they are learning. When students use all of their senses, it helps the brain create pathways that make it easier and quicker to retain information. LEGO Education is adequately prepared to support high-quality teaching and learning practices to support the expert instruction needed for all students to be successful in their respective grade levels and for the future.

Title IV, Part A: Student Support and Academic Enrichment
The future of the nation depends on students having a high-quality, well-rounded education that will prepare them to successfully compete on a global stage and engage as citizens. Exposure to a vibrant, well-rounded education that teaches them how to read and think critically is crucial. A well-rounded education supports both content knowledge and skill development. LEGO Education solutions engage all disciplines and provide innovative and engaging ways to develop 21st Century Skills (i.e. creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking).
