Students learn best when they include hands on learning. Through pop-ups and mech-animations students create meaningful sculptures that require algebra and geometry. Workshops were held in early Summer 2010 for teachers working with Math, Science and the Arts. Teachers interested in teaching engineering to students as young as 1st grade have found training workshops very beneficial. Students can connect engineering concepts with real life instances – bringing deeper understanding to their learning.

Winter 2011 Benninson¬† brought two new prototype curriculum which teach electrical switches – “ElectroCity” and ElectroCar”. Over a dozen educators and staff trained in late January with implementation of lesson throughout the Spring of 2011.
