Placeholder Image
Two classrooms in Warren County got a little smarter this week with the gift of InterWrite pads that were donated by Bridgestone.“The school system was given Bridgestone Trust Fund money to purchase them a couple of years ago,” said Diane Parton, the hands-on science instructional coordinator of Warren County Schools.The InterWrite pads, which work with computers and projectors to act as a portable smart board, were funded by Bridgestone for BEECH (Bridgestone Environmental Education Classroom and Habitat).BEECH is a partnership between Bridgestone and Warren County Schools that provides hands-on opportunities to students in environmental education and across the curriculum. Located at Bridgestone’s 600-acre native landscape beside its Morrison plant, BEECH is certified as a Corporate Lands for Learning program by the Wildlife Habitat Council.Local students visit the center for a field investigation for student scientists. The area has a room for centers, a lab classroom, a 1.7-mile teaching trail, and a pavilion for outdoor lessons and lunches.
