1999 Toshiba/NSTA
Laptop Learning Challenge

The Toshiba/NSTA Laptop Learning Challenge rewarded K–12 educators for their innovative uses of laptop computers. The 20 selected lessons have science, mathematics, and technology components and take place in the classroom, in the field, or in informal science institutions. There are five lessons in each of four categories: Elementary Level, Middle Level, High School Level, and Informal Science (grades K–12). The lesson plans demonstrate how laptop computers can be used to engage students in hands-on learning of science and mathematics. The lessons are useful for teachers planning a science or math activity, for pre-service preparation, and for in-service professional development.
