Introducing the newest technologies to Northampton students is nothing new. From early elementary to the high school, we have been at the forefront for many years. Our Technology Integrationists strive to enrich our students and support our teachers in authentic STEAM endeavors.  With the arrival of Virtual and Augmented Reality equipment here at JFK, we can now enrich curriculum and engage learning in new and amazing ways.

In grade six, we have visited Egypt, exploring the pyramids, temples, and other important regions and artifacts. In grade seven, we have already explored and built molecules, understanding how protons and electrons work.  We have really just scratched the surface; the possibilities across the curriculum are truly endless. We hope to explore the body, visit museums, and travel the world, all in an attempt to provide students with the chance to acquire mastery of standards at a deeper level.

If our first tries are any indication, students and teachers are going to benefit from this new technology for many years to come.
