LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Teachers of all grade levels are taking part in hands-on physics experiments.
With help from physicists from University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, those teachers are constructing mini wind turbines and roller coasters.
The exercises give the teachers new ideas about how to teach young students about mechanical energy.
The two-day workshop is meant to prepare area teachers to meet new science standards.
The workshop is funded through a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
The grant will fund future workshops as well.
