Lindsay Peck, our AIG teacher, won a LIFT grant from the Union County Education Foundation this week! She wrote the grant during our time off because of Hurricane Florence, in hopes to help find new ways to improve learning for the academically and intellectually gifted students. Miss Peck wrote her grant in order to purchase Google Expeditions for her classroom. Google Expeditions is a type of virtual reality toolkit specifically designed for education. Students can visit places all over the world, from the Great Barrier Reef to temples in India to the volcanoes of Hawaii and beyond. Students can also get a glimpse inside the human body or discover what the inside of a cloud is really made of! Miss Peck’s class won enough money to purchase 6 Google Expedition sets, which includes the device and durable viewfinders. Her hope is to continue writing grants to eventually have a class set of Google Expeditions!
