***image1***Computers on Wheels recently arrived at Kaiserslautern American Middle School and Kaiserslautern American High School. The computers are laptops used in math and science classes.

At KAMS, there are 16 COWs per cart and two carts in the school. Students use COWs to learn new software in math, including Geometer’s Sketchpad. Students, teachers and even the school’s vice-principal were excited about the technology

This month, science teachers met for the Kaiserslautern District’s Science Conference, where they learned how to use COWs in the classroom. Lynn Smith, Europe’s Regional Science Coordinator for high schools and Sadie Fairley, Europe’s Regional Science Coordinator for middle schools conducted the conference.
