Students Participating in the Duke Libraries' Pepsico K-12 Technology Mentor Program Show Their Stuff

The Duke Libraries' Pepsico K-12 Technology Mentor Program recently sponsored its first technology showcase.  Pepsico Technology Program coordinator Dottie Black has been working with teachers in the Duke/Durham partnership schools, “to grow technology leaders from inside the school building.”
This year, at each of four of schools, a teacher designated as a technology mentor has been working under Black’s direction with two protegé teachers on a variety of projects that incorporate technology into teaching.

On 31 May, students and teachers from participating Durham public schools came together at Rogers-Herr Middle School to demonstrate projects they created through the program. More than 140 parents, teachers, younger brothers and sisters, and school administrators took in the podcasts, blogs, claymation, wikis, and robot dogs that were on display.


Rogers-Herr seventh graders explain the projects they have done this year to Eric Croson, CFO of Pepsi Bottling Ventures.
