I remember when my son was only 11 years old we went to Legoland at California. I saw Mindstorm Workshop and had awesome time there building Mindstorm robots with my son. They guide you how to build robots and do some missions by coding. It was the first for us to get introduced to Lego Mindstorm and since then we bought Mindstorm and enjoyed a lot of STEM activities at home.

Your visit to legoland and its thrill ride with your kiddos will be interesting way to introduce STEM mindset if you plan ahead and play well. SchoolYard blog talks about how to help k-12 kids to be prepared for better theme park experiences while enjoying exiting rides.
