Step 4: Upload your photos of your model to this group – you can submit up to 4 photos per model and as many models as you like!
Step 5: Add a description of your model and what the key parts represent in no more than 50 words along with the name of the creator, their age and the school.
What is LEGO Education BuildToExpress?
LEGO Education BuildToExpress empowers students of all abilities to creatively communicate their thoughts and feelings. Students are tasked with buildings models that illustrate their understanding of various curriculum concepts. Each BuildToExpress set includes over 200 LEGO elements in a separate storage unit. They have been carefully selected to provide a broad spectrum of “ready-made metaphors”. The colorful bricks, accessories and Minifigures inspire students and stimulate their creative thinking and imagination.
For added inspiration for your entries, we got our team here to create some models on what an ‘ideal day in the office’ looks like to them. You can take a look at them here.
We look forward to seeing your entries!
