Students receive iPads

PINER, KY (FOX19) - Students at Piner Elementary received a special gift on Friday.

They were presented with iPads, courtesy of the Duke Energy Foundation.

Last year's iPad pilot project with Summit View Elementary was such a success that the program was expanded to Piner.

The iPads are pre-loaded with apps that are geared towards subjects such as energy, fun physics, geology, geography and math. Students will complete tests and worksheets on the iPads, reducing paper use. Books can also be loaded to the iPads.
