Build a strong foundation for computational thinking and engineering skill development with in-classroom and structured after-school options with FIRST® LEGO® League Explore Class Pack.
FIRST® Class Pack provides the framework for facilitators to guide their students through 12 sessions where they’ll use their Engineering Notebooks to explore the fundamentals of engineering through a real-world problem, learn to design and code, and create unique solutions made with LEGO® bricks and powered by LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0.
Resources available to facilitators include scope and sequence options, which feature variations to customize activities to extend learning beyond the 12 sessions using FIRST and LEGO Education supporting materials.
To ensure students are acquiring knowledge and developing skills that are age- and grade-level appropriate, the FIRST LEGO League Explore Learning Progression can also be used to validate or assess students' knowledge and skills.
Class Pack includes printed materials and access to digital materials through the FIRST® Thinkscape Portal from August 2021 to September 2022.
In this year’s FIRST LEGO League Explore season, CARGO CONNECTSM, your students will get creative and use their critical thinking and imaginations to explore how cargo is transported, sorted, and delivered to its destinations.
