To Celebrate The New School Year, Workshops
Will Be Offered Free in September & October
SOMERVILLE (September 1, 2015)- LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston announced today a collaboration with LEGO® Education to provide a unique, high quality learning experience to pre-school and elementary-aged children through their new LEGO® Education Workshops.
The LEGO® Education Workshops are between 30-45 minutes long and explore a range of topics including storytelling, science, engineering design, mathematics and language arts. The workshops have downloadable sheets for teachers to use in advance, during and after their visit so the curriculum can be integrated into their classroom discussions. In addition, each workshop was developed to meet and address Common Core Standards.
“We have partnered with LEGO® Education to develop workshops designed exclusively for LEGOLAND® Discovery Centers which enhance the educational experience children have during their school visit,” said Kelly Smith, Marketing Manager at LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston. “Utilizing the LEGO® System for Learning, the curriculum is designed to unleash children’s creativity and imagination which makes learning fundamentals such as STEM and STEAM more fun.”
To celebrate the start of the 2015-2016 school year, LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston will be offering free workshops during September and October to teachers who sign-up for a school trip (on a first come, first serve basis.) They will also be hosting a Teacher’s Open House in the fall for interested teachers to check out the curriculum first hand.
School field trips and LEGO® Education workshops are available Monday through Friday during the school year. For more information on the LEGO® Education Workshops or to book a free workshop, visit the website or call 866-228-6439.
LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston is open daily from 10 am. Advance tickets are suggested to guarantee admission and can be purchased online at http://www.legolanddiscoverycenter.com/boston
