A small sample of on-the-ground feedback....

We are beyond excited and have already utilized the iPads in our instruction. We are truly appreciative for all of the work you do for the Madison School District."
, , ! Thanks to your grant, 7th Graders at Madison Junior School came, they saw, and they conquered the Metropolitan Museum of Art! Students explored the museum’s ancient civilizations exhibits and completed a scavenger hunt coming face to face with artifacts that make ancient history come alive. Thank you again for your generosity by turning our dream trip into a reality!"
High School Teacher: "Thank you so much for this tremendous grant that will allow us to purchase a 3D Scanner. I cannot express how much this will enhance the curriculum and aid MHS in keeping up with industry standards.
