The Grundy Avenue Elementary Tech Club meets monthly in the library with the goal of exposing students to technology they would not normally use during the school year.

From graphic design programs where students created their own company, to Google Expedition using virtual reality glasses to climb Mount Everest and go to the Museum of Natural History, it has been a fun experience for everyone involved.

“They loved this,” said Melissa Lawler, who runs the library and is the Tech Club adviser at Grundy.

Students also spent a week working with Ozobots, small programmable robots, and a program called Story Board to map out digital stories with online cartoon strips. 

Most recently, students wrote scripts about their Grundy memories and filmed the scenes using a green screen, allowing them to write, shoot and edit their own videos. 

Clearly, the Tech Club takes extracurricular activities to a diversified and educational level.
