LEGO Education Workshops at BETT 2019
Book your place today
We are incredibly proud to announce that LEGO® Education will be joining the CreativeHUT stand at BETT 2019 this January to provide a series of teacher training workshops.
The agenda has been developed to cover STEAM subjects across EYFS, Primary and secondary education and will include the exciting new launch of a fabulous new product for EYFS, Coding Express. The team will also be showcasing some fantastic new developments that will open up WeDo 2.0 and LEGO® Mindstorms Education to the wonderful world of Scratch 3.0.
WeDo 2.0 and Scratch 3.0
23rd – 26th January, daily @ 12:00
Key Stage 2
Scratch 3.0 is the next generation of Scratch and includes various extensions for hardware products, including WeDo 2.o. Within this workshop, you will learn how Scratch 3.0 compatibility allows students to extend a purely digital experience with the hands-on experience of LEGO Education solutions.
Conversely students already familiar with WeDo 2.0 will be provided with more choice, such as moving from icon-based to text-based programming.
Get on Board: Coding Express
23rd – 26th January, daily @ 12:30 & 13:30
Early Years Foundation Stage
An exciting first look at a new product, coming to the UK this spring. Coding Express is a first introduction to early coding for 2-5-year-olds based on the well-loved classic, the train set.
A creative and versatile solution that introduces early coding concepts while developing critical life skills needed for the 21st century such as confidence, collaboration and creativity. Delivered through rich teaching material built to curriculum standards.
Mindstorms® & Scratch 3.0
23rd – 26th January, daily @ 14:30
Just as with WeDo 2.0, the arrival of Scratch 3.0 includes integration with the LEGO® Mindstorms Education. During this workshop, you will learn how this new cross-platform compatibility provides new choices for students and helps them more easily learn different coding languages. Connecting Mindstorms to Scratch 3.0 further expands the possibilities that can be achieved and provides the opportunity to collaborate cross one of the most popular coding communities in the world.
