Join us for a great day of LEGO Education Academy training at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort! Get hands-on with the fantastic SPIKE Essential under the guidance of a LEGO Education Academy Certified Trainer.

If you are a primary school teacher (or senior leader/governor) who is looking to introduce LEGO Education SPIKE Essential into your primary school, then join us (Raising Robots) for a fun, hands-on training workshop. It will focus on teaching STEAM and Computing through a hands-on and creative approach – developing deep learning.

SPIKE Essential is part of the LEGO Learning System and is ideal for primary pupils as the kit combines icon and word-block coding and fantastic hardware to bring STEAM concepts to life! You’ll also have time to explore the free curriculum units and lesson plans which will support you and your pupils. This is an ideal workshop for teachers who have purchased SPIKE Essential recently and are new-users, or educators who are thinking about purchasing SPIKE Essential in the near future.

LEGOLAND Windsor staff will be on-hand to talk about their award-winning, hands-on workshops for young people. Join us for a great, fun day!

Places are limited – so grab your spot and yes… you will have the chance to enjoy the rides after the workshop! If you are unable to attend this date, Raising Robots will be delivering a number of online sessions that will be free for you to attend.
