When this bus rolls, the classroom comes with it

With its stop at the Westview Apartments in Sylvania June 25, the four-week summer mobile lab finished as a weekly average of 100 children, aging from 2 to 16, had the chance to use computers on an air-conditioned revamped school bus.

The mobile lab that also operates throughout the county in the afternoons during the school year visited St. Andrews Hill,

Lawton Place
, Hiltonia, Westview and the Jenk Hill community in June. The lab sessions at each location were from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. as school system educators assisted the children with programs.

The mobile lab program was so popular that even several dozens of parents boarded the bus to spend time with the children and access the computers too.

Each child was required to complete a Math Facts in a Flash program on the bus. The program is designed to increase the child’s recall of mathematical elements at various grade levels. Once the child had finished the flash program, he or she were allowed to perform interactive games that help develop vocabulary and reading comprehension.

Middle school teacher Deanna Bragg provided the software for the computer programs. The children who boarded the parked bus were provided a drink and snack.

The bus offered learning opportunities for children. Current professional international basketball player and former ScrevenCountyHigh School standout Jessica Lonon, who was home for the summer, even brought her Bible study group by the mobile lab.

On June 23, the Screven-Jenkins Library System Bookmobile followed the mobile lab to its destination. Barbara Gilbert, who operated the bookmobile, signed youth up for library cards. The mobile lab teachers said they would like to have more interactive visits with the library and other county programs.
