LEGO Wall Promotes Problem-Solving and Social Skills
By: Technology Coordinator Becky Taylor
Over the summer, with the help of wonderful staff members Leon Haywood and Ronnie Patrick, Rossman installed a Make and Create LEGO Wall in the Tech Center. This 10.5 ft. x 6 ft. wall, generously funded by the Rossman School Parents’ Club, offers an epic learning space for students of all ages.
The idea for the LEGO Wall developed while reviewing and analyzing the MakerSpace movement that has become popular in schools all over the world. We wanted to introduce the MakerSpace concept to Rossman with something that everyone can enjoy and admire. Just a week into the new school year, the LEGO Wall has already become a constantly evolving wall of imagination. It is quite exciting to see new creations every day!
Building with LEGOs provides both individuals and groups opportunities to develop social, problem-solving, organizational and planning skills by constructing three dimensional “pictures” on a wall of endless possibilities.
LEGOs have always provided a fun environment for creativity, and now our students can visualize not just in 3D, but from a vertical space which gives them a perspective totally different from the horizontal space traditionally associated with the art of LEGO building.
Stop by the Tech Center to Make and Create your own body of work to share with us.
