Siler City, NC - Tuesday, February 13, will mark the third Legislative School Technology Day at the North Carolina General Assembly Building. The event will be a showcase for state legislators to see how technology is being used to support learning in classrooms across North Carolina.

The activities will begin at 10:00 a.m. with State Board of Education Chairman Howard Lee and State Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson welcoming the students, teachers and other representatives of local schools. Following the opening remarks, attendees will be invited to tour the exhibits.

As of January 16th, sixty-seven schools were scheduled to exhibit at the Legislative School Technology Day. One school from every school district in the state has been invited to send students and a teacher to participate. Dr. Victoria Raymond and two of her students from Jordan-Matthews High School will represent Chatham County Schools at the event. They will be making video examples of motion and analyzing the physics of these motions by capturing the video into the LoggerPro software and making graphical representations of the components of the motion.

In addition, they will be measuring and analyzing the relationship between pressure and volume with the same software. They will have supplementary materials on hand in order to demonstrate methods for investigating several other physical phenomena like temperature, sound, and light if time and interest permit.
