STEM with LEGO Bricks

Let’s first start with STEM! STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. So, a good STEM project will intertwine two or more learning areas to complete the project. STEM projects often focus on solving problems and can be based on real-world applications.

What is STEM? Read more about STEM here and real-world STEM projects here.

Building with LEGO offers an engaging and hands-on way for kids to explore and integrate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts into their play. Kids develop problem-solving, critical thinking, and spatial reasoning skills by constructing structures and with LEGO pieces.

Assembling and disassembling LEGO models encourages a deep understanding of engineering principles, allowing kids to grasp concepts like structural stability, balance, and leverage. As kids follow instructions to build intricate models or unleash their creativity to design their own creations, they gain valuable insights into mathematical concepts like geometry and proportions.

LEGO is a fantastic tool for developing STEM skills, and it doesn’t just have to be about using Powered Up functions or Mindstorms! Good ole 2×2 and 2×4 bricks will do the trick for our younger engineers. These types of challenges make the perfect stepping stones to more involved LEGO STEM projects later on!

STEM challenges are usually open-ended suggestions to solve a problem. That’s a big part of what STEM is all about!

Ask a question, develop solutions, design, test, and retest! The tasks are meant to get kids thinking about and using the design process with Lego!

What’s the design process? I’m glad you asked! In many ways, it’s a series of steps an engineer, inventor, or scientist would go through to solve a problem. Learn more about the steps of the engineering design process.



We try not to use many fancy pieces if at all, so anyone can look at these LEGO ideas!

Discovering how to use the LEGO pieces you already have to make something cool is a great skill for young kids to learn early on. You don’t always need more of something. Instead, use your imagination and work with what you already have!

Here are a few tips:

  • Don’t have enough of one color? Use another!
  • Have a fun piece you can use instead? Go ahead!
  • Want to take the challenge to another level? Make up your additions!
  • This Classic LEGO set is perfect if you need to add pieces to your collection.

The goal is to be able to put those critical thinking skills to the test!
