Put your Simple Machines Knowledge to Work to Better Learn STEM Concepts using LEGO®
The hands-on solution allows students to predict, test, observe, measure, record and present their findings. In this way, they work as young scientists, engineers and designers, making their own discoveries along the way. Even the least science oriented educators will feel secure teaching these standards and concepts with LEGO®.
