No more pH paper or mercury filled thermometers in our science classrooms!
Thanks to an Innovation Grant from the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation, the science classes at Gresham High School have new wireless computer interfaces and new wireless modules that will communicate with iPhones or iPads.
Using an existing supply of sensors that can measure pH, temperature, conductivity, heart rate, dissolved oxygen and carbon dioxide, the new computer interfaces will allow our students to use these devices and have the results downloaded to their phone. The software will be used on 5 new iPads that were also included in the grant award.
The Gresham-Barlow Education loves to fulfill teacher’s wish lists. Through our Innovation Grant process, any teacher in the District can ask for funding for a project or curriculum or technology that enhances the learning process for our students.
