This will be centered around “inquiry-based learning,” basically the idea that children are motivated to generate their own questions. Looks like the students creation will be emphasis over at Lego School, and this will play a major role in our ever-growing world.
The School will be opened for kids at the age of three to seven years old in August. Students over the age of 16 will be invited to join this program in 2015.
