180 from 21 schools participate

Hardin County Schools students use technology every day in classrooms. Many students carry technological skills home and use them for research, homework or to play educational games.

HCS students showcased the fruits of those skills Monday night at the second annual Hardin County Schools Technology Fair at Bluegrass Middle School.

“This is an absolutely wonderful opportunity for students from across the district to display some of the work they have been doing with technology both in and out of the classroom,” Instructional Technology Director Tim Maggard said.

“Students will display their technological artwork, video production, distance learning activities, multimedia presentations and so much more.”

More than 180 students from 21 Hardin County schools participated.

“Students have prepared everything from school newscasts and technology repair to many, many classroom instructional strategies,” Maggard said. “These students and teachers have worked extra hard to make this a fun event for everyone in the community.”

Students from HCS middle and high schools assisted in design and implementation of the event. Students received first-hand experience in real-world technology as they worked on challenges including troubleshooting and running cables at the fair.
