The Biology Department will expand on the success of probes that were purchased with NPEF grants over the past two years, this year adding digital microscopes, called ProScopes, that provide digital images that can be displayed on a computer monitor or projected onto a screen. These digital microscopes create immediate images that can be captured, […]
The Chemistry department uses probes to gather real time data and information which helps them to understand and to make connections between abstract concepts. This year they will be receiving a multimedia projector, attached to a Chemistry room
To continue the successful implementation of the inquiry based learning investigations and the “minds-on” experiences provided by the physics probes, the Science department is getting another permanently mounted digital projector in an additional physics lab. In addition, the equipment will provide students with an increased opportunity to produce relevant accurate and concise presentations based around […]
A grant will be provided to each elementary school to add a second multi-media presentation cart. Last year the NPEF provided one multimedia cart to each school as well. The new cart will help reduce waiting lists and allow teachers and students to further access internet resources, present student work, reinforce lessons, and design class […]
Four digital cameras will be purchased through this grant for teachers and students to use to enhance their lessons and presentations and to develop skills with interactive technology that increase productivity and creativity.
