During the three-day workshop, each team learned to create a user-friendly web site based on fourth grade curriculum content standards. Nikole Blanchard, a fourth grade teacher, and two parents, Slava Sereda and John Hanley, facilitated the construction of the sites.
The Winning Team Students, Sarah B., Bronte' D., Lori D., and Taylor S. created the winning website.
The students met several times during the summer and even went on a field trip to visit the topic of their site! Each of the four students, a parent of each child, and the teacher will attend an all-expense paid trip to San Franciso, California, in December to receive recognition for the winning site.
