This 9-Year-Old Bedford Girl’s Brilliant Invention Could Help Keep Kids Away From Screens (posted 12.06.17)

This 9-Year-Old Bedford Girl’s Brilliant Invention Could Help Keep Kids Away From ScreensShe isn’t even in middle school yet, but Bedford's Andie Nugent is already taking the science world by storm with her inventions and creative spirit. This year, along with hundreds of other applicants, the 9-year-old even submitted one of her inventions to a national convention. For her project, Andie took on the challenge of coming up with something “that would keep kids away from screens.” Her invention, called The Kazi, would give kids a code to unlock their devices, depending on how active they have been. Kids won’t be able to play on their devices until they have been outside or active enough. On June 3, 2017, The Kazi beat out the competition at the National Invention Convention in Washington DC. Andie won the Technology and Wearables Award. Read more

BEDFORD SCHOOL DISTRICT CORNER- WHAT'S HAPPENING AT BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL (Posted 11.29.17)


What’s Happening at Bedford High School?
Craig Sheil/Bedford High School
Look closely at this photograph to see GREAT use of both low tech and high tech in a high school classroom. Students in one of Scott Sarsfield's math classes are analyzing data collected on the motion of a pendulum. The pendulum is swinging from the ruler hanging off the edge of the table in the top right of the photo. Students collect data directly on the whiteboard table, and perform initial calculations by hand. Next, the students use a free graphing calculator program called “Desmos” on their chromebook to enter in data to analyze what the graph looks like. All of this work with pendulums reinforces the laws of nature (physics) and the link between mathematical formulas and graphs.
