GRAAFF-REINET BUSINESS NEWS & VIDEO - Care for Education is a non-profit organisation and partner of the LEGO Foundation. They provide training and educational resources for children, schools and organisations in need.
They aim to impact early childhood development and primary education, using STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) which engage children in playful learning.
Care for Education provides LEGO Play Boxes to organisations around the world that are supporting and working with children. Training workshops were presented by Danie Heymans of Care for Education.
Each play box contains a variety of elements which are valuable as teaching and learning tools in any curriculum, from early childhood to adulthood. A play box provides opportunities for activities which promote skills development and learning through play.
The workshop was well-received and enthusiastic teachers were reminded that learning is accomplished through play. Watch a video below:
Further the aim is to introduce Lego Robotics to all the primary schools in Graaff Reinet to supplement the development of 4th Industrial Revolution skills in the classroom.
The goal of Care for Education is to get kids excited about math, science and technology from an early age. During the project, students will learn how to build LEGO robots and then program them on a computer to execute designated tasks.
This is a successful collaboration between Care for Education, Pendula ICT and the Johann and Gaynor Rupert Foundation.
