When itâ€™s not releasing awesome car and botanical sets, LEGO likes to focus on education. The companyâ€™s just announced two new sets focused on STEAM concepts that donâ€™t require electronics. It even includes lessons for teachers to use in schools. TheÂ BricQ Motion Essential aims to teach children six and up, while theÂ BricQ Motion Prime educates kids ten and up. Both sets cost $99.95.
TheÂ BricQ Motion Essential, meant for children six and up, includesÂ 523 LEGO bricks (counting some replacement bricks for when things get lost or broken), a sturdy storage box with color-coded sorting trays, two printed building instructions booklets, and twoÂ curriculum units each with 6-10Â hours of educational content.
And if youâ€™re teaching children aged ten and over, theÂ BricQ Motion Prime includesÂ 562 LEGO Technic and brick elements (including replacement elements), a sturdy storage box with color-coded sorting trays, a printed building instruction booklet, and aÂ Science of Sports curriculum unit with 6-1- hours of educational content.
According to Esben StÃ¦rk, president of LEGO Education, â€œMaking learning engaging is more crucial than ever, and we are excited to bring two solutions to market that support teachers in the classroom and encourage students in the field of STEAM from a very young age. From understanding the cause and effect of push-pull forces via a tight rope walker balanced with weighted bricks to exploring Newtonâ€™s laws through land yachts and propeller cars, BricQ Motion was designed to engage even more students and teachers in the discovery of STEAM concepts.â€�
Teachers helped design the curriculum, and given the modular nature of the LEGO itâ€™s likely possible to create further curriculum as well. You can buy the $99.95 sets today at the LEGO education site.
