8 Thursday, February 20, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Death $Talley Schools get new computers Death Valley Unified School District now has all of the classrooms at the Death Valley Elemen- tary and Shoshone school sites wired for computers to use the internet. The District has a total of 34 students, 16 at Death Val- ley and 18 at Shoshone. There are two comput- ers connected to the internet in the 4-6 grades classroom at Shoshone which has a total of 7 stu- dents and one in the K-3 grades room with the re- maining 11 students. Death Valley has a total of 3 computers connected at this time. There are sev- eral more computers uti- lized by the students also, but they are not connected II lUil/ Pahrump Valley Gazette (702) 727-5583 ,, , ,, to the internet. This is a major accom- plishment as most large schools are now where near this level of com- puter technology or com- puter student ratio. Each classroom has wiring to accommodate up to eight computers connected to the internet. Funding for the wiring and new com- puters needed to access the internet came from grants and from various other bits and pieces and the total spent was around 10,000. The school has unlimited access through digital lines. The main office is also wired and business services con- nected with San Bernar- dino County business of rice will be utilized also. I observed as the 4-6 classroom at Shoshone as students "Surfed the Net". The two younger students found the discovery area and explored topics of chocolate and how movie stunt s are made. The two older students moved around to several differ- ent areas and then con- centrated on the NBC news site and were actu- ally reading the latest news of the day. Then they moved on to the topic of "books" and found there were some 17 million entries to choose from. As I left they had lo- cated the Guinness Book of World Records and were exploring it.
