Profile

ProfileFounded by Dr. Seymour Papert in 1981, LCSI is a leading publisher of award-winning, constructivist educational software for K-12 schools around the world.

The primary objectives of our software are to develop a child's creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Not only are these key elements of normal intellectual development but these are the type of skills that workers of the next century will need to succeed.

LCSI brings together some of the world's most innovative educational designers, teachers, software engineers and writers to develop products based on the constructivist philosophy of learning. LCSI has won 28 prestigious educational software awards in North America, Europe and Asia.

MicroWorlds EX is the latest in a wonderful line of products used by millions of children (and adults) around the world. MicroWorlds EX is an environment in which students can explore and test their ideas as they create science simulations, mathematical experiments, interactive multimedia stories, whatever they can imagine!

MicroWorlds EX Robotics Edition comes with all the features of MicroWorlds EX plus full programming capabilities for the Cricket robot, palm sized micro computer, and the LEGO NXT® Brick. With it, students are scientists and inventors as they plan projects, construct models, and EXPLORE BIG IDEAS. Whether building airplanes or puppets, cars or toys, students acquire significant science, technology and math skills as they construct and program their models.

MicroWorlds JR is designed for Pre-readers to Grade 4. It puts your child in
full control and no reading is necessary. It's easy to learn and use with
simple, point & click operations, using "child-friendly" symbols, and a
comprehensive audio help. MicroWorlds JR develops creativity, problem
solving, critical thinking skills and logic.
