The World’s First LEGO School in Denmark - The LEGO Foundation is proud to announce that in August 2013, the International School of Billund will be opening it’s doors to kids aged 3-16 looking for creative and high quality learning.
Although most kids might be hoping for a degree in the art of LEGO Building, the school will base it’s programs on the International Baccalaureate curriculum framework, which is widely recognized in more than 140 countries around the world.
The LEGO Foundation owner Mr. Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen states that the school promises to create a stimulating and modern place to learn, experimenting with “allowing time for creativity, play and getting into a state of flow”, but agrees with the curriculum and many of “good old” learning methods.
Mr. Kristiansen hopes that the school will help in their efforts to give back to the town that LEGO calls home. The School of Billund is just one of many projects that LEGO has sponsored in Denmark, including an airport, community centers, church, theater, and a library; Oh my!
