School of Education Hosts LEGO Day for Local Students, Parents and Teachers

05.29.2013

HPU High Point University STEMHIGH POINT, N.C., May 29, 2013 – High Point University’s School of Education will host an additional LEGO Showcase event from 1 to 5 p.m. on June 22. Teachers, parents and elementary students are invited to attend.

The Showcases invite local teachers and elementary students to experience, learn and participate in LEGO learning projects, robotics showcases and free build areas. The activities are designed around the state’s STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)

“Our last showcase was filled with 29 schools, almost 200 students and more than 225 adults,” says Dr. Shirley Disseler, assistant professor of education. “It is evident that both children and parents want to be prepared for the STEM needs of our world, and we don’t want to deny anyone in our community that opportunity.”

Disseler says the events also allowed HPU education majors to see how engineering and “build by design” concepts are relevant in the state’s new STEM curriculum.

Teachers, parents and students can sign up by emailing Disseler at sdissele@highpoint.edu.
