Connect to the World Through STEM

Build a strong foundation for computational thinking and engineering skill development with in-classroom and structured after-school curriculum that connects students to the world through science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).


FIRST® LEGO® League Explore Class Pack includes curriculum for educators and facilitators to guide their students through 12 sessions designed to introduce the fundamentals of engineering through real-world problem solving. Using LEGO® bricks and powered by the LEGO® Education SPIKETM Essential, students will learn to design, code, and create unique solutions.

The 2024-2025 ocean-themed SUBMERGEDSM materials will help students use creative thinking and LEGO® technology to explore the layers of the ocean and bring learnings and ideas to the surface in a new challenge launching August 6.
