The Importance of STEAM in Early Learning
Children naturally use their curiosity and instincts to explore, experiment, observe, and play. They are constantly exploring the world around them, testing and experimenting and thinking like small scientists - what happens with the LEGO bricks, the paper or the leaves, will they float or sink? What happens if I roll the car down the ramp? What if I use a ball instead? How can I make a chain reaction? These types of skills lay the foundation for the development of children's Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) skills.
LEGO® Education is excited to announce our newest solution for early learners! STEAM Park is designed to spark children's natural curiosity and interest within the learning areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM).
The concepts of STEAM are introduced through hands-on learning experiences with LEGO® DUPLO® bricks. Using an amusement park as the theme, this set will instantly engage your preschool class in a familiar way.
