For parent visitation day, we used iPads to make screencasts of writings about what we thankful for and created QR codes so our parents could scan them to see our picture and listen to us read our writings. Our parents thought it was very cool!

“Reading at Home books at high interest, but low reading level, added to selection of books in the reading room. Students clamored to read these new non-fiction books!”

“The instrumentation purchased with the YSEF funds allowed my students to do exercise physiology experiments like measuring the oxygen in their exhaled breath, determining their different lung capacities, and independent research projects in the AP Biology course. This probe lab instrumentation is an excellent investment as it allows students to do the hands on activities that truly make science come alive. I am so very appreciative of the YSEF grants and can see the return on this investment in the excitement that my students exude as they learn about anatomy and physiology.”

“The students were able to visually recognize if they worked hard enough to exercise in their target heart rate zone. It is difficult for students to know how hard they have to exercise to be in their zone. The heart rate monitors were a very useful tool.”
