Barrington 220 School District Amps Up STEM Program (opens in new tab) (Barrington, IL)
Becky Gill, Director of Elementary Education, and Becky McDowell, K-fifth grade STEM teacher, sought to complement their core science curriculum and considered two offerings with LEGO Education’s learning solutions coming out as the winner. McDowell says, “LEGO Education provided the flexibility to modify and add our own content to it. Because programs and standards and other things change and if there’s not as much flexibility, then over time it’s going to become outdated. We’re excited to iterate and improve upon what we’re teaching each year.”
