KidSolve® trainers have been working with Logal software since 1995 and are experienced with all releases of the science, mathematics and MBL models, including the Internet versions. Workshops are tailored to specific needs of each school district but can generally be grouped into several categories:

Introductory Mathematics: Focused on the models usually used at the middle school and freshman high school level Probability Constructor, Mathematics Toolbox, Geometry Inventor and Algebra Animator. These models relate mathematical concepts to real world examples familiar to youth and provide interactive variation to display the effects of range of variables and boundary conditions. The workshop covers the software's wide range of manipulations, the built-in teacher's tutorials, the preprogrammed lessons, and the portfolio system for monitoring student activities

Intermediate and Advanced Mathematics: Focused on the models usually used in the upper grades of high school and beginning college Statistics, Function Investigator and Matrix Analyzer. These models provide powerful analytical capabilities which can be used to interpret real world data from both the physical and social sciences. The workshop covers the wide range of curve fitting, animation, data collection and transformation capabilities of the models, the built-in userâs guide and turorials, the preprogrammed lessons, and the portfolio system for monitoring student activities.

Introductory Science: Focused on the initial introduction of the science software into the classroom. The mix of biology, chemistry and physics models will be determined by the needs of the teachers in each workshop. The workshop covers the software wide range of manipulations, the built-in teachers tutorials, the preprogrammed lessons graded from introductory to advanced, and the portfolio system for monitoring student activities.

Advanced Science: Focused on the expanded use of science models in the curriculum. The mix of biology, chemistry and physics models will be determined by the needs of the teachers in each workshop. The workshop covers the use of the spreadsheet and graphing, customizing and creating lessons using the built-in construction tools, the use of the Logallery presentation system, scripting and hypertext.
