Darden Middle School in North Carolina Awarded Short Throw Projector Package

Casio America, Inc.’s Business Projector Division announces that Karen Bessey, media coordinator/tech facilitator at Darden Middle School in Wilson, North Carolina as the winner of its Mobile Classroom Package. The package worth $12,500 includes a Casio Short Throw Projector, Casio Pen & Software, 30 pairs of Casio 3D active glasses and an AVRover Cart equipped with a 3D computer.

“Casio’s projector will enable our school to engage students in new ways. It’s a great tool to help teachers, in all subject areas, bring a strong visual component to their lessons,” said Karen Bessey. “And it especially suits visual learners, allowing them to use digital storytelling to explain a science process or plot details. This prize couldn't have been awarded at a better time - when needs for engaging lessons are great and funds are low. We’re very thankful that Casio ran this contest.”

Casio’s Projector Technology Grant contest ran from August 25 – October 31, 2011. Winner selection was done by a random drawing conducted by a third-party judging agency from among 2500 entries of a sweepstakes, which was open to administrators and faculty of public or private schools and universities in the United States.

Casio’s new Short Throw projectors are outfitted with a 0.68 throw ratio lens, an Interactive Whiteboard, and can display 3D content from a 3D-capable computer.
