Local grant funds science class equipment


From left, Indian Lake Middle School science teacher Jana Core and 7th graders Paris VanCourt and Isabel Brunson weigh water on one of the school’s five new digital scales. Core received a $355 Energizing Education grant from the Logan County Electric Cooperative and used the money to purchase the scales so students can make precise measurements for solids and liquids. She had requested three scales in her grant application, but was able to purchase five because the scales were on sale. Students have already used the digital scales as part of their units on scientific tools and conservation of mass.
