Weights and measures

ILMS Energizing Education

Indian Lake Middle School science teacher Jana Core, left, along with seventh-graders Paris VanCourt and Isabel Brunson weigh water on new digital scale purchased through a $355 Energizing Education grant from the Logan County Electric Cooperative received by Core. The seventh-grade teacher used the money to purchase five digital scales that give students the ability to make precise measurements for solids and liquids. In her original “Weighting on the Science” grant application, Core asked for money to cover three scales. However, when she went to make the purchase, the units were on sale, enabling her to buy five. Students have already used the digital scales as part of their studies on scientific tools and conservation of mass. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)
