Improving Easton Education
After reading an article in November 2015 that 32% of 2nd grade students in the Easton Area School District read below grade level, National Honor Society member Jack Quinn wanted to help. With the help of TeenWorks funding, Jack purchased six Little Scholar tablets for the Spring Garden Children’s Center in Easton, PA for their lower income, at risk pre-K students.
“[The tablets are] pre-loaded with over 200 educational reading, math and geography applications... [Jack’s team] taught the children and teachers how to utilize these tablets combining both technology with fun and engaging educational games to keep the children interested.”
