Gerogetown County School District

The Georgetown County School District is pleased to announce its second annual Georgetown County Schools Technology Fair to showcase students and teachers using technology for learning. Entrants will submit projects that reflect both the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) and general curriculum standards.

We are committed to our students having the skills necessary to succeed in the 21st Century.  The Technology Fair venue will give our students and teachers the opportunity to demonstrate creativity, innovation, problem solving, decision making, critical thinking, and communication and collaboration skills using a variety of technologies. An over-arching theme of the fair is for students to utilize technology to solve a range of real-life problems. 

Exhibiting adaptability and responsiblity with technology is fundamental to compete in today's world. The goal of the Technology Fair is for students and teachers to present their best ideas and use of technologies in an atmosphere of sharing and learning.
