LEGO Michigan Teacher Workshop

Teachers of the third and fifth grade from Birmingham, Michigan school district will be working with LEGO Dacta Bridges and Structures and Motorized Simple Machine Sets to accomplish their math/science goals and objectives.  These teachers are learning "hands on" the concepts and procedures needed to instruct their students.  They also used this opportunity to organize their materials.  The third grade teachers will be using LEGO Dacta Bridges and Structures, while the fifth grade teachers will use LEGO Dacta  Motorized Simple Machines.
