Welcome to Walnut's Fabulous Computer Labs!

Here at Walnut, we believe in teaching our students the fundamentals of current technology as well as preparing them to work with technology of the future by encouraging problem solving and flexible thinking.  Our two computer labs are equipped with 90 Dell desktop computers. Students come to lab multiple times a week in 30 minute sessions to learn new skills, fine-tune their technological knowledge,  practice skill building through programs such as; Achieve3000, BrainPOP, FasttMath, Moby Max, Rosetta Stone, Type to Learn, Waterford, and to create beautiful standards-based projects. Mrs. Hammer oversees both labs, but they are also used regularly by teachers for whole-class activities and enrichment projects.

***Walnut students have home access to Achieve 3000, BrainPOP, FasttMath, Moby Max, Type to Learn, and Waterford.  Enjoy!
