Even a small school can set up important partnerships with multinational companies. André Fillion of École Rose des Vents in Cornwall, a small French school with 226 students, has proven this. For example, a partnership with Lego Dacta, the educational wing of the Danish toy company, resulted in a project called "Au boulot avec la techno" (Let's get to work with technology). Using special Lego blocks and a computer, Mr. Fillion's students make models that can move manually or have their motion simulated on a computer. The students made a number of objects that taught them important lessons in physics, such as a roulette wheel, which demonstrates some basic concepts of motion and velocity.
