GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A West Michigan school is part of a nationwide campaign to enhance kids' learning through Tinkertoys.

This week, 400 schools throughout the country are encouraging preschoolers to identify a problem in the world and solve it using Tinkertoys and what they call "The Four C's." Those are communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking.

We visited the Goddard School in Grand Rapids to check out what they came up with.

Alex Jokich explains the innovative program in the video report above.
