The Estes Park School District announced in February that they were awarded a $6,200.00 grant from the Safeway Foundation.
These funds were used to purchase 25 Google Expedition Kits that allow our students to take virtual journeys all over the world. The portable kits are being used in all three schools on campus. The entire class is lead by their instructor as they explore the same location with the ability to view their surroundings in a 360 degree format.
Through the weeks following the purchase of the Expedition Kits, the STEAM classes have gone on multiple journeys in the comfort of their own classroom and learned about places they have dreamed of going to.
Estes Park School District R-3 would like to give a heartfelt thank you to our wonderful community Safeway for allowing us to give this opportunity to our students! This is a wonderful example of 21st Century learning at its best!
