The town’s public schools will be able to purchase a range of high-tech gear as a result of $5,580 in grants awarded by the Pembroke Education Foundation. Since its founding in 2003, the foundation has annually provided educators with grants for enrichment programs. Starting this year, it is also providing grants for technology equipment and materials. This year, it is making 11 grants for such things as four LCD projectors for the elementary schools; data-logging software and other materials for a weather station and a mini-planetarium at the middle school; a document camera for the middle school; graphing calculators for the high school, and online library books for Bryantville Elementary. These grants follow the foundation’s donation of 10 iPads to the district in August.
