Subject:         Lego Dacta Educational set- Creative Engineering with LEGO
Date: November 3, 2012 at 3:22 pm PST

The book is titled Brick layers Creative Engineering with LEGO
constructions. It's out of print but still sells on Amazon. It's written
for teachers to use in the classroom to teach mechanical and structural
engineering concepts. The front of the book says its for Grades 4-9. The
concepts are taught by making things with Lego and then quantifying with
graphs and charts. The activities are grouped into inclined plane, levers,
wheel and axle, gears, cycloids and stable structures.

The Lego set is educational and is Lego Dacta 1031. I went to ebay to see
what it sells for.I decided to sell it for $35, which is the middle of the
pack, but it sold many times in the 40s, 50s and even $66! The set is
complete with the 20 activity cards.

I went to Amazon to check out book prices. The book is out of print now,
but is offered used at Amazon from $20 to $180. I'm going to sell if for

So the total cost for both would be $55 plus shipping. Shipping would
depend on the method, your choice.

Thanks for looking.
