Davis Creek Elementary 5th Grade
Demonstrates LEGO Dacta at the
Engineers Club of Huntington

Linda Hamilton receives an award from Dr. Thomas Wilson
Mrs. Linda Hamilton, a Mathematics Instructor at Marshall University, was the featured speaker at the April dinner meeting of the Engineers Club of Huntington. Mrs. Hamilton volunteers at Davis Creek Elementary where she works with LEGO Dacta materials to teach math and science concepts. LEGO Dacta kits are motorized and require the use of gears, pulleys, levers, bricks, plates, connectors, pneumatics, and LEGO Cad (Computer Assisted Design). The fifth grade students from Davis Creek Elementary accompanied Mrs. Hamilton to demonstrate the LEGO models during the hour prior to dinner. Kevin, Steven, Ryan, and Emily used three of their spring break days to help build and prepare the demonstration. Emily stayed for dinner and also demonstrated LEGO Control Lab with Intelligent House. Emily also helped Mrs. Hamilton by showing LEGO Cad and LEGO Motion during the demonstration. Mrs. Hamilton showed a slide show of several LEGO projects that had been completed by Davis Creek students. Mrs. Hamilton received an award from Engineer Club member Dr. Thomas Wilson for her contribution to our community and her presentation to the Engineer's Club.
