aseda26: Introduction

Hi,
I am a lego novice. I never played with legos as a child. I grew up in Africa and I knew some families had legos but we just never had it. We played more outdoor type games. Anyway, I have been researching STEM curriculum for my six year old and discovered that there are so many neat inventions that can be made with legos! I love the fact that you can use legos to introduce youngsters to the concept of engineering at an early age. I would like to start a lego after school program in Africa but since I personally never played with them, I feel handicapped. I have been researching the lego website and have found that they have curriculum for different educational grades. Is this the best route to take? How do I decide what designs the children should be building and what parts/kinds of legos I should purchase?

Any advice is deeply appreciated.

    Where in Africa? I am in Cameroon for work more often than not. Difficult to come by Lego here, only seen one or two sets for sale and at 4-5x markups. Welcome

    Thanks for the welcome Bumblepants. I live in the US but I do want to start the lego project in Ghana. You are right that it is difficult to come by legos there...hence my reason for wanting to do this. Thanks!
