The teacher academy is held once a month on Saturday for local teachers to come experience a different LEGO training each month. The cost of the 6-hour training is $200 per participant and includes lunch, break-out sessions and a teacher appreciation package. The day is packed with activities using the kit-of-the-month. We feature BrickMath, EV3 robotics, StoryTelling With The Brick and WeDo 2.0 trainings. Teachers come together to learn how to inspire, engage and excite their students to love to learn!

Centered on teaching math using LEGO brick. Participants will learn how to motivate students to learn the conceptual side of math by using a model, draw, build format for K-5 mathematics.
Early Simple Machines
Duplo bricks designed to bring the ideas of force and motion, balanced and unbalanced, forces and engineering design into the hands of kindergarten and first grade students.
EV3 is the newest product line of the LEGO Mindstorms format.
This workshop will provide an overview of the programming, allow participants to get started and learn about how to make the robot move. This program is designed for beginners with EV3.
Story Telling With The Brick
Story Telling is a great addition to any content area. Using the kit one can explore how to build and tell a story, define story related vocabulary (plot, climax, antagonist etc), create math story problems, recreate historic events etc… Training with the visualizer software will also be included in this workshop. Great for teachers of any grade level.
LEGO WeDo Robotics is an early robotics program designed for students in grades 2-6. It involves design builds and programming that is easy to manage and helps children learn basic math and science concepts. If your students plan to use NXT/EV3 this is a great way to introduce them to programming.
Participants attending elementary simple machines will learn how to use the simple machines and their functions to create builds that use force and motion through levers, wheel and axles and gears.
PreK-1 Activity Training: Early Simple Machines & StoryTales
PreK-1 training activities centers on product exploration of Early Simple Machines, Story Tales, math Café, and Creative Builder. Participants will do activities from various sets to explore how they can be utilized in an early learning setting.
Half Day STEAM Park & Coding Express for PreK-K
This workshop uses Duplo Bricks with STEAM Park to model gears and early physical science. Coding express adds a new twist by integrating coding into early PreK learning with Duplo.
