Sen. Lanane participates in award ceremony

 

INDIANAPOLIS ¿ State Senator Tim Lanane, (D-Anderson) today applauded Madison County¿s Pendleton Heights Middle School for being awarded a $1,500 grant that will be used to purchase new technology.

 

¿In today¿s world technology can make the difference between good and great,¿ said Lanane. ¿Pendleton Heights is a great school with great students and teachers and this grant will make it even better.

 

¿Pendleton Heights worked hard through a very competitive process to receive this grant and we are very proud of them,¿ added Lanane.

 

The EDS Technology Grant was presented during an event in the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis. Pendleton Heights Middle School was one of eight schools across the state to receive this award.

 

The EDS Technology Grant Program helps teachers of children ages six through 18 purchase information technology products and services that will improve their students¿ ability to learn. Once a year, $1,500 grants are awarded to teachers through a competitive application process. Teachers are asked to explain the innovative nature of the project, how students will use the technology and how the technology will improve students¿ ability to achieve the objectives of their curriculum.

 

Norman Clifford, whose grant proposal was selected, teaches eighth grade science at Pendleton Heights and will use the funding to purchase water quality collection probes. These probes will be used to collect data in the field that can be downloaded directly into a computer in the classroom or a creek-side laptop. The water quality of Fall Creek will be monitored by the students using these probes and the information collected by the students will be shared with the local park department and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

 

EDS is a global technology services company with clients in the manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, communications, energy, transportation, consumer and retail industries and governments around the world.
