A look at how the education team at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort work with teachers to bring learning to life outside the classroom and create memorable experiences.
Pupils visiting the park can also take part in one of the varied curriculum focused workshops to experience a fun hands-on and engaging session hosted by trained educational staff, with a host classroom teaching experience.
Led by the LEGO® Education Academy Certified Education Team, there are 14 unique workshops finely tuned to complement the National Curriculum – with a LEGO® twist. Pupils can learn about STEAM, English, geography and computing to name but a few.
Workshops suitable for Primary and Secondary pupils include:
Robotics Primary – SPIKE Essential (new for 2023): students will build and programme their own interactive model covering key computing topics including coding, repetition in programs, debugging, inputs & outputs and algorithms using the brand new LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential kits.
Around the World: pupils identify and locate the earth’s continents and oceans on the bespoke LEGO® map. Ideal for Key Stage 1-2 students, linked to geography, the session explores famous landmarks, animals and buildings.
Science of Rollercoasters: this workshop brings science to life, exploring how gravity, friction, air resistance, weight and momentum all work together on a rollercoaster. Aimed at Key Stage 2&3, pupils will be tasked with designing and building their own LEGO Rollercoaster ensuring all forces are in balance allowing the rollercoaster to function correctly.
LEGO® Robotics – Secondary Edition: bring maths and computing alive outside of the classroom with this session for KS 2&3 students. Through a hands-on approach, students complete a series of challenges with their LEGO® SPIKE™ Prime Education Robots.

Alongside the interactive educational sessions, there are more than 55 exciting rides, live shows and attractions to explore around the resort in Berkshire which is set in 150 acres of beautiful parkland.
