Have you ever wondered if video games like Minecraft and Roadblocks are educational for your children? Here is a little perspective from Chase Hartt, a 4th grader at Discover U, on why he thinks so.
What is the biggest thing you ever built? I am still working on getting new Legos. For Christmas I got 2 boxes of Lego Ninjago (about 600-700 pieces in each one) and have built them along with my brothers’ Legos.
How long have you been putting Legos together? My mom said I have been playing with Legos before I could walk, and I have loved building and playing with Legos since I can remember.
What is your favorite video game? I like to play Minecraft and Roadblocks.
How do you think video games and Legos are educational for you? Minecraft is educational because you have to learn to survive in the game. Roadblocks is a game of strategy that makes you have to think and plan your every move. Legos are educational, as you have to think about area and perimeter and also colors and shapes.
What is your favorite thing about Discover U? I like the technology and the math lessons. I love using the computers.
