2018 PAECT Student Technology Showcase


On Monday, April 30, 2018, 32 students and 6 advisors attended the Pennsylvania Association for Educational Communications and Technology (PAECT) Student Technology Showcase in the East Rotunda Wing of the Capitol Building in Harrisburg. This showcase is held annually to present legislators and the public with the opportunity to learn how teachers and students are integrating technology into K-12 classrooms across the Commonwealth.

While at the showcase, students had the opportunity not only to explain their projects to students and teachers from other districts, but also to Rep. Kerry Benninghoff and Rep. Adam Harris. Both gentlemen took time to visit the display tables, meet the students, and learn how technology is being infused in the classrooms in Mifflin County. As an added bonus, Senator Corman, who was unable to attend the showcase, set up a time for all of Mifflin County students to visit the Senate Floor and have their picture taken.
