Discovering the Discovery Dome!

The Discovery Dome
Blackland Prairie Students had an "out of this world" experience when the Discovery Dome came to Blackland Prairie. The Discovery Dome is Round Rock ISD's portable planetarium, which is a digital theater using a Newtonian mirror system to project the images on the dome-shaped theater. It is awesome!
Students enjoyed their first of two visits scheduled for BPE. Teacher Debo Coats and ITS Anita Oliver delivered the lessons to students in Grades K-4.

Students in Mrs.Houghtby's class

Projectors at Blackland

Teachers at Blackland Prairie are enjoying their Data Projectors and using them in countless ways. Tammy Conrad and her Kindergarten students completed a lesson using Excel and Unifix Cubes to graph the pairs of shoes students have.

Here's their photostory!  Great Job, Mrs. Conrad and Students!
