Parker School recently received a $15,000 matching grant from the William H. Hurt Foundation. The school successfully met the match through individual donors, and the $30,000 raised was used to purchase Vernier data-collection technology for the science department.

The school’s science lab was recently remodeled with funding from the Kako’o Fund, a recent capital campaign, and houses the state-of-the art connected science system. The system includes data-collection software, shared interfaces, probes, sensors and more. These tools are designed to improve students’ understanding of scientific concepts by providing immediate graphical analysis that can be shared both in the lab and wirelessly.
