Learning Balance and Gravity with LEGO

My kids love LEGO bricks and STEM. For that reason LEGO education was the perfect addition to our playroom. They spend hours playing and learning about different STEAM topics. Besides learning it also promotes collaboration, communication and problem solving. Kids learn while they play and don't even notice it! So much fun!
