- During the morning, teachers and students opened their classrooms to visitors, who sat in on lessons in progress and got a sense of the tech tools used for various subjects.

- The best part? The slideshow was made by the school's principal!
- The afternoon session consisted of "speed-geeking" sessions, where students turned the library into a teaching zone for visitors. Students were on hand to demonstrate tools such as Google Sketch-Up, GoMotion, SpiderScribe, iMovie, EDU 2.0, Magnetic Levitation Vehicles, Quizlet, Google Docs and VoiceThread. The crowd loved it!
