HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY (FOX19) -

The Center for Applied Informatics at NKU has helped develop an application that is assisting teachers improve their student's math skills in the early stages of learning.

The project is a partnership between the University and the community that will allow college students to hit the ground running once they reach graduation.

John Herold says he wants to make a difference in people's lives. The Northern Kentucky University Senior is getting real world experience working with the Center for Applied Informatics.

"I got to develop database skills and web scripting and web application skills taking this data they had collected and researched and making it into a searchable use friendly web applications." said Herold.

The project has enabled first through third graders improve their math skills, but it's the college students that are learning what it means to make a difference in the lives of those in their community.

It has been a unique pairing that comes from both ends of the spectrum. Students that are learning the rudiments of addition in early elementary school to college students that are dealing with state of the art web development technology.
