LEGO education

 

The word LEGO is formed from the Danish words "LEg GOdt,” which means to "Play Well.”
It was only years later that the founder Godtfred Kirk Christiansen discovered that the word “lego” in Latin means “assemble or put together”.


 

History of LEGO Education

LEGO Education was founded in 1980 in response to demands from teachers and childcare practitioners.  Initially kindergartens sought larger DUPLO bulk sets for groups of children, but the business quickly expanded to provide simple science and technology solutions to primary classrooms, some of which are still sold to schools today.

Today LEGO Education supplies educational solutions for children from 1½ to 16+ years, with a global network of more than 50 suppliers across 60 countries.

With this global network we estimate more than a 1,000 people work for LEGO Education today – and the number is growing!

 

About LEGO Education

About Us Learning is at the very core of the LEGO Group’s most heartfelt values and the company has invested many years of cooperation and research with educators and child development specialists to build a rich understanding of what it takes to provide effective learning experiences.

While exam scores may continue to dominate agendas, research shows that there are greater benefits to education by focusing on applying knowledge as a means to expand learning than on acquiring knowledge in order to pass examinations. The role of educators is changing.

 

Care for Education

"Only the best is good enough."

This was the motto of Ole Kirk Kristiansen, founder of the LEGO Group, and it is the cornerstone of the LEGO Foundation’s We Care and Share philanthropy programmes, which include Care for Education.

Programmes aim to inspire children and young people to develop into responsible members of society through fun, learning and high-quality creative play activities. 

Reaching out to less priviliged children

The Care for Education programme cooperates with Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Foundations, Embassies and other private companies that have the same philanthropic goals. Together, we reach out to underprivileged children around the world, with the purpose of giving them an education that meets the demands of the 21st Century.

Resources and Training

The Care for Education Programme provides LEGO Education resources and training for schools, and supports participation in Robotics competitions. Care for Education also supports local kindergartens, schools and orphanages by donating LEGO Charity Boxes.
