District 54 to Host Educational Technology Fair

Byline: Shruti Date Daily Herald Staff Writer

Technology is prevalent in offices and homes - for work and play. Schools also tap technology to tap the potentials of young minds.

But how is technology used to teach grade scholars math, science and social studies?

Schaumburg Township Elementary District 54 will help parents understand at its annual Technology Share Fair on Feb. 15.

The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Eisenhower Junior High School, 800 W. Hassell Road in Hoffman Estates.

Parents will find out how students use technology in many different ways - from how to research foods and their origins to how students can learn about foreign lands.

For example, Addams Junior High School students, with a science teacher and a technology facilitator, will show how probeware is used to collect, organize and analyze data.

For more information about the fair, call Pat Lester, District 54 learning technologies coordinator, at (847) 885-6740.

Math for money: Students at Frost Junior High School, under the direction of teacher Carrie Mashek, earned $1,551.69 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in December and January.

The Schaumburg school's Gold Team participated in Math-a-Thon, a supplemental math education and fund-raising program.

Students found friends and family members to sponsor them for the number of math problems they solved. Parents were asked to check the answers regularly with an answer key.

The top fund-raisers were seventh-graders Mike McHugh, who collected $202.20, Vince Abbate, who ended up with $178.50, and Kristen Arredia, who finished with $140.

Eighth-graders Ali Chmiel raised $150, Kate Laduzinsky, $115.40, and Dan Celvi, $105.

Fremd dancers: The Fremd High School Orchesis Club will perform the "Orchesis Dance Show" Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m.

The show features 18 dances and more than 50 participants.
