Description of the methods/ approach

The only official partner of LEGO® Education in Ireland there are after-school classes, weekend workshops, summer camps, birthday parties and other events inside schools, colleges, libraries, homes and further education venues throughout the country.

Workshops include:

  • Early Builders
  • Junior Robotics
  • Senior Robotics
  • Girl Power
  • Family Workshops
  • Parents Playtime


Through award-winning camps and workshops, young children not only gain a deeper understanding of STEM subjects, they also learn how to think creatively, solve problems and work as a team - all key skills which can be applied to other subjects and brought with them into adulthood..

With an increasing demand for our services, we are taking our classes and camps to a growing number of venues throughout Ireland. See our Locations page to find the nearest one to you.
