JCHS Teacher Receives Simply Smart Grant

Raye Pedigo, physics and calculus teacher, at Jefferson County High School is one of the 2018-2019 Simply Smart grant winners sponsored by Knoxville TVA Credit Union. She received $1439 to purchase 2 Flashforge 3D printers and filament to incorporate 3D design technology into her instruction. The students designed and printed keytags first to learn how to use the open-source Tinkercad software, then designed and printed Christmas ornaments and rocket nose cones and fins. The students launched the rockets they built using Estes engines at the high school practice field.
