recently ran a contest to give away a brand-new, full featured and very robust Infocus interactive projector. I do want to say that choosing the winner was much harder than I thought it would be. All of the participants shared fantastic ideas that not only showed how they would use the projector but also how they'd incorporate the content from Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers. The comments that really stood out were the ones where the teachers shared project-based learning activities they would plan for/with their students and described how they and their students would also interact with the projector.
I simply couldn't make the decision myself. I reached out to a few of my friends for some conversation and I want to send huge thanks to my very good friend Sue H., whose expertise as a smart, creative, and loving classroom teacher made her a perfect judge for this contest. I also want to thank Tom Miller, producer for Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers (and quickly becoming a good friend of mine as well).
@shannonwa on Twitter) is well deserving and will soon have a brand new InFocus IN3900 series projector delivered to her door! The projector will provide Shannon with an easy and exciting way to build on the science lessons she shared in her comment at the post.
Thank you to all who entered. Stay tuned for a special guest blog post from Tom Miller from Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers. He may have something up his lab coat sleeve for my readers!
