If you are a parent and have a child that loves Lego's and building, then you know the amount of bacteria and germs that may accumulate on those pieces. With the recent challenges centered around COVID-19, we at STEMbotics Learning Center are committed to ensure that all of our Lego pieces and equipment are thoroughly sanitized. Please view the materials, steps and video to learn about how we sanitize our equipment. You may also use these steps to sanitize your Lego pieces at home.
