Scheer Wins WST Grant

CHS is proud to announce that James Inman and Daniel Scheer teamed up this year to secure one of nine WST grants out of over 40 entries. The funds will be used in a cross-curriculum project allowing students to become Virtual Travelers to exciting places around the world using 15 Virtual Reality Headset Goggles. This technology will allow geography students to view 360 degree views of places like Washington DC, Paris and Dubai in both still photo and video forms. Science students will be able to visit places like MIT’s fusion reactor, Googles Server Centers and Iceland’s Underground Seed Bank. A set of 360 degrees cameras will also allow science students to film their own school lab activities in a way never imagined before. These are exciting times at Covington High School.
