EXCEL Students Solve Problems with Planks

Students in Islip’s EXCEL program recently created a ramp using KEVA Planks, cube-shaped wooden block toys that are increasingly utilized in schools, libraries, museums and maker spaces as teaching tools for various subjects. The experience helped the students learn that the same task can be solved in endless ways.

“KEVA Planks are more than just fun building blocks – they can be used to teach STEAM objectives and help students problem solve,” said EXCEL program coordinator Julia Johnson.
