Enrichment Partner Spotlight: Tools for Learning

Uncategorized | By tlm_developer | No Comments on Enrichment Partner Spotlight: Tools for Learning

As careers in science, engineering, and technology continue to grow and flourish, parents are becoming more and more interested in seeking STEM education for their kids. While many schools incorporate STEM learning in their regular curriculum, few have time to help kids explore the many experiments and activities available that provide dynamic, hands-on learning.  

To address this issue, Rio Grande Educational Collaborative partners with the organization Tools for Learning to teach STEM through LEGO Robotics. LEGOs, which you may well remember from your own childhood, are now being used to teach all types of STEM topics to kids, using methods they find fun and engaging.  

For decades, kids have been using LEGOs to build their own toys, cities, and whatever else they can imagine. Incorporating kids’ favorite toys is a great way to inspire fun while learning. With the guidance of Tools for Learning and their RGEC instructors, kids will learn how to build robots using specialized LEGO sets.  

These lessons fit in perfectly with our E-CUBED model, as kids get to Explore new skills and activities in an Enriched learning environment, all while receiving additional Education in math and engineering. This model states that Exploration, Enrichment, and Education are the three essential building blocks of extended learning. We look for each of these components when choosing which organizations to partner with.  

LEGO robotics is one of the many ways that we incorporate STEM learning into our after-school programs. To learn more about Rio Grande Educational Collaborative’s enrichment partners and the lessons we provide, contact us today!
