(BUCKLIN, Kan.)—Students in a small southwest Kansas school district get a new, hands-on way to learn science.
The Bucklin district won at $10,000 grant. That money will provide the district with science kits and 15 new mini iPads.
"It's something that kids this age gravitate towards. They are learning by doing, and I think with the science kits that we have, it will go hand-in-hand with how kids learn anyway." said teacher Jane Hokanson.
The grant came from the Monsanto Fund. Local farmers nominated the district. More than 1,000 schools filled out grant applications.
