New laptops make learning fun

HAYS – Six Dell laptops are adding a SPARK to school projects for students in Hays.

The Special Projects and Resources for Kids purchase replaced older technology that had become so unreliable it was no longer being used. The new laptops are enabling project research, powerpoint multimedia projects, word processing, and online virtual learning. Students recently completed their semester long independent research projects and have produced  a variety of projects to demonstrate what they have learned with the use of the new laptops.

During COVID-19, the laptops have been used to zoom with others and watch videos to learn about their individual topics since in-person field trips were not an option.
