It's a common problem for teachers. You have a bunch of LEGO kits you use in your class, and within a few months, it turns into a huge sea of plastic parts. That makes it difficult for your students to find the parts they want, wasting very valuable class time.
So what is the best way to store all that precious LEGO? Back in 2009, with the help of the community on the LEGOengineering mailing list we put together a document that highlight a variety of different ways. Roll around to 2013 and ther are a lot more LEGO kits out there and plenty of teachers looking for good ideas.
So once again we put the call out to the mailing list to help share some ideas. I've collated all the ideas that came through and created a Google Doc with the info.
While it might not be perfect for your classroom, it might have some good ideas you can borrow :)
How do you store your LEGO? send me some pics and I'll add them to the list!
