WJHS Project Helps W.J. Zahnow Preschooler
February 27, 2015 - Annette Rau and her 2nd hour class from Waterloo Junior High have been working on a special project for months, and today, they finally got to deliver their hard work to a very special young man. Jeremiah is an energetic preschool student in Traci Biffar’s classroom at Zahnow Elementary who was full of smiles today when 20+ 8th grade students came to visit him. The junior high students have been using the computer program Google Sketch Up to design milk carton holders and zipper pulls for Jeremiah, who has cerebral palsy. The technology students started from scratch, measuring milk cartons and zippers to create designs that would help Jeremiah with these two everyday tasks. The class came up with multiple options for Jeremiah, who seemed to love them all, especially the blue milk carton holder and all of the ones with his name on them! Jeremiah’s mother,Cynthia, was overjoyed by the experience and said that Jeremiah has made huge strides in his first year in preschool. The experience was one that none of the students will forget. It’s an amazing feeling when students can use technology in the classroom and see its impact on students in their own district.
