Enhanced from Gen-y to Gen-X

Congratulations to Shannon Coldren, a junior at Wichita North High School and former GenY student, www.4Kids.org's first TeenTech of the Month. The GenY program pairs students and teachers to help integrate technology into the curriculum. Shannon's GenY teacher, Ms. Limon-Lowderman, says Shannon is an "active, well-rounded student." Shannon worked with Ms. Kean on the North Science Enhancement Project--a Web site about the North High science program at www.feist.com/ ~sfredin/ science/ index.html. Now a GenX, a graduate of the GenY program, Shannon provides technology help to "the GenY students and all the teachers." Learn more about the GenY program at www.genyes.org/genwwwy. Way to go, Shannon. Enjoy your 4kids award pack. (These sites are no longer available.)
