The largest award given this round was a $6,028 SEED grant to Horne Street School to purchase 12 Bak Atlas 2:1 convertible tablets and a portable cart. Built in the USA, the Bak tablets have a rugged design and shockproof exterior to protect against drops and spills. The equipment will be used across all grade levels to support classroom instruction and online testing. The tablets will also be used to develop digital literacy, research and presentation skills through grade-appropriate projects.
