The dream of an education centre began long before this all began, in fact, it was Trustee and Founder Peter Jones’ dream to create an educational facility that is accessible for local students to motivate them outside of the classroom and stimulate passions for technology and engineering, inspiring future careers.
About Lego education
Learning is at the very core of the LEGO Group’s most heartfelt values, and the company’s education division has invested many years in cooperation and research with child development specialists and teaching professionals to build a rich understanding of what it takes to provide truly effective learning experiences.
We run a variety of workshops designed for schools from Reception to KS4, these can be tailored to meet specific learning objectives whilst the students are taught to build, program and develop in a self-directed, creative and collaborative way.
