The University of Information Technology and Management (coordinator of S-PLAY) recently organized a LEGO session for high school pupils. The topic? Economics! LEGO models representing GDP, consumption, public debt and unemployment were used to help participants in a small group competitive economic policy decisionmaking role-play. Designed by the Forum Obywatelskiego Rozwoju (Civil Development Forum) in cooperation with the World Bank, the session shows how young people can be encouraged to explore complex economic issues by the use of interesting and unusual methods – such as LEGO play.

This workshop was not linked to the S-PLAY project however it was run by the coordinator partner who takes a great interest in LEGO-based learning.
