Group uses iPads at HOSC exhibit

WID-TVC recently donated 10 new Apple iPads to the Hands-On Science Center (HOSC) in Tullahoma, Tenn. The HOSC is a museum, visitor attraction, and education-based center. Children and teachers primarily utilize this facility for science curriculum teaching and learning science centers.

The WID-TVC chapter reached out to HOSC to determine the center’s greatest needs.

“iPads were the first thing that popped into my mind, because my home school classes always need them to do a little research on something,” said HOSC Director Deb Wimberly.

These iPads will be used in the classrooms to teach students researching skills. Additionally, students will use them at current exhibits for more interactive opportunities. Finally, teachers will incorporate them into weekly treasure hunts at the center to make them almost exclusively electronic.
