HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 27, 2013 – Local elementary and middle school teachers can learn how to use LEGOs in their classrooms to enhance Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) learning at a showcase taught by HPU assistant professor of education Dr. Shirley Disseler and a robotics expert from LEGO®. The programs are sponsored by the LEGO® Education Academy to offer professional learning opportunities to area schools and districts.

Two showcases are scheduled in the coming months on HPU’s campus:

Dec. 14: LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3
This showcase focuses on the easy-to-use robotics technology that provides engaging engineering projects for students.

Jan 11: LEGO® Education We Do Robotics
This program is designed for the elementary learner. Students build everything from animals to soccer players, then add movement with drag and drop software. The program also includes ways to integrate the projects into other subjects including literacy and social studies.

“In both programs teachers will discuss possible ideas and discuss how to be a part of the Lego Community site,” says Disseler.

Registration for both programs is open. Teachers can register by contacting Disseler by calling, (336) 841-9631 or email sdissele@highpoint.edu. The cost is $200 for each educator attending. Participating teachers will receive an introductory training kit and lunch.
