Teachers from throughout the region gathered at Edmonds’ Holy Rosary School Thursday morning for an important task: To play with LEGOs.

The teachers — not only from Holy Rosary but from the Edmonds and Seattle School Districts — were actually attending a hands-on workshop focused on using LEGOs to bring STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and other 21st-century skills to life in preschool, elementary and middle school classrooms. Parents were also invited to participate.

Holy Rosary recently raised the money to start its own LEGO Robotics course — one of the area’s first elementary schools to do so.

  1. Fantastic idea. My grandson has been playing with LEGOs since he was 3 (will be 5 in April) and it is amazing to see what he builds from his imagination. Also has learned to follow directions on kits with a little help from an adult. Hopefully class will not become too structured or at least will have some free build time.
