For the past 10 years, our district has had a strong connection with the School Leaders Advancing Technology in Education (SLATE) Conference. We have not only been consistently sending teachers to learn and grow in their technology advancements at this conference but have also had the opportunity to be consistently chosen to lead and present there as well. At SLATE, our educators are able to share and network with other professionals the great things that our district is doing to move our students and the world of education with the use of technology forward. This year, the team of presenters were Heather Stanley, Caitlyn Kiefer & Helen Xiong. #BrookwoodsBest #slatewi

Students in Ms. Lind and Mr. Herman’s classrooms were challenged to solve a string of lights problem after studying series and parallel circuits. Students were to design a string of lights to solve a company’s customer issue to use the least amount of wire and the least amount of energy sources, so it would be the most profitable to manufacture. Teams were to simulate a burned out bulb and design and test different circuit designs that would make the customers happy with the company’s product. Here are some pictures of what the design teams came up with. #BrookwoodsBest
