Our LEGO Innovation Studio is proving to be a truly exciting new development at GEMS Cambridge Kampala, the first in Africa.
For over 30 year, LEGO Education has been working with teachers and educational specialists to provide ideas, solutions and resources that bring subjects to life and make learning fun for all pupils - regardless of their age or ability- using the power of LEGO in classroom.
From science, technology and geography, to English, computer science and Maths, we’ve been amazed the flexibility and suitability of the LEGO Innovation Studio in all areas of our curriculum.
Whether pupils are exploring different weather patterns by using LEGO plan, sketch, design, construct weather vanes propelled by motors or writing their own stories by building LEGO scenes, our studio encourages students to think creatively, reason systematically, release their potential and shape their own learning.
In August 2015, in partnership with LEGO Education, we opened the first fully kitted LEGO Education Innovation School at GEMS Cambridge International School-Kampala.
This partnership represents an exciting moment in the development of our school.
For over 30 years, LEGO Education has been working with teachers and educational specialists to provide ideas, solutions and make learning fun for all pupils regardless of their age or ability.
With our sister school in Nairobi (GEMS Cambridge International School-Nairobi) who have a similar facility, our studio allows students to explore lines of thinking in Science,Technology, Geography, English, Computer Science, Mathematics and the Humanities.
With educational sets, activity packs, teacher resources and programming tools, we can make learning inspiring and meet students curriculum needs.
What better way than to explore different weather patterns than by using LEGO Equipment to plan, sketch, design, construct weather vanes that are propelled by motors!Ultimately,our studio will encourage students to think creatively,reason systematically and release their potential to shape their own learning.
