3D Printing Workshop Held at GCHS
Gates County High School students participated in the “Incorporating 3D Printing in Integrated Career Technical Education Instruction.” Guest professors from Old Dominion University, Virginia Wesleyan University, and East Carolina University spent the week engaging the students with hands-on training with 3D printers.
Dr. Daniel Dickerson of East Carolina University and a Gates County Board of Education member, oversaw the weeklong event. The students got to participate in engineering activities geared towards STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) involving the use of the 3D printers. The teachers involved had the opportunity to develop competencies in using the 3D printers in their instruction, to use problem-based learning and to use human-centered design.
Thanks to all involved in making this opportunity available for Gates County Schools.

In Memory of Mallie and Virginia Jernigan
This Teacher Mini-Grant is given to a K-5 teacher employed by Gates County Public Schools to enhance student learning outcomes. This $500 mini-grant is in memory of Mallie and Virginia Jernigan. Mallie was born and raised in Gates County and attended Gates County Public Schools. He lived his adult life in Suffolk, Virginia, as a farmer.
For the 2016-2017 school year, the winner is Ms. Susan Parker, 2nd grade teacher at Buckland Elementary School. Congratulations, Ms. Parker!! The name of her project is "Farm to Store." She is very excited about implementing this project with her second grade students this year.
