LEGO® Innovation Studio Primary Schools Taster

Primary – Computing

Summary

Pupils will have the chance to build and program their own robot.

They will assemble the robots using the LEGO® WeDo resources. They will then be able to program the robots using the LEGO® WeDo software (a visual programming tool that introduces the concepts of computer code). Pupils will be expected to work as part of a team to complete the tasks within the allocated time. Once the groups have completed these tasks, they will then be tasked with extension problems and have the opportunity to demonstrate their robot.

Outcomes

The aims of this activity are to teach pupils the basics of computer programming.

The session needs to be a minimum of 90 minutes up to a maximum of 3 hrs.

Minimum group size is 12 and maximum is 24.

Primary – Literacy

Summary

Pupils will have the chance to use LEGO® as the basis for their own creative story.

They will use the LEGO® Story Starter resources to build key scenes from their story building on the essential parts that are needed to make a good story. They will then be able to use this as the basis for writing their own story having used the LEGO® to integrate the characters and set the scene. They will take pictures and use the LEGO® Story Visualiser software to help publish their story including their own creative writing. Pupils will be expected to work as part of a team to complete
the tasks within the allocated time and help each other to create a unique, original and imaginative story.

Outcomes

The aims of this activity are to enhance creativity and written skills.

The session needs to be a minimum of 90 minutes up to a maximum of 3 hrs.

Minimum group size is 12 and maximum is 24.

Primary – Technology/Engineering

Summary

Pupils will have the chance to explore different concepts that underpin the everyday knowledge used by Engineers.

They will use LEGO® Simple Machines to construct designs that make them question the engineering world that surrounds us. They will be asked to think about weight distribution, gearing and construction when completing challenges and trying to find the best solutions. The challenges will test the student's ability to test solutions and then modify based on findings. Pupils will be expected to work as part of a team to complete the tasks within the allocated time.

Outcomes

The aims of this activity are to enhance problem solving skills whilst covering some key engineering concepts.

The session needs to be a minimum of 90 minutes up to a maximum of 3 hrs.

Minimum group size is 12 and maximum is 24.
