We are all so proud of one of our favorite teachers, Mr. Jeffrey Kallam, for winning Edgewood's Innovative Teaching Grant. Every year, the Edgewood Education Foundation gives money to schools for interesting educational projects. This year, Mr. Kallam won a grant to explore wind and weather.
Mr. Kallam's idea was to buy an electric wind generator and weather station. The electric wind generator will provide renewable power for the water pumps in LBJ's courtyard garden. The electric wind generator will also power up a portable battery that students can use for learning on-the-go. The weather station will help students and families learn about climate and the environment.
