District 54 to Host Educational Technology Fair

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.

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