The Jan. 25 storm forced a delay until Wednesday and a change of venue for the Kids Tech University program at BGSU, but the program organizers think everything will be even better.
According to the program director Professor Paul Morris, the Kids' Tech University program is intended to simulate a true university experience for the children who are between the ages of 9-12. The change of venue means that the morning talk will now be in a lecture hall in Math Sciences building, while the afternoon activities will be in some of Biology teaching labs in the Life Science Building.
"We want the children to be able to see themselves as future science students at BGSU. Now, they will be in some of the same classrooms and labs that we use for our introductory classes. I think that is pretty exciting," Morris stated.
The program will start off with a story about algal blooms in Lake Erie by Dr. Kane an Associate Professor at Defiance College. The afternoon activities have a focus on the study of organisms in aquatic systems and water quality issues.

PERRYSBURG - About one-quarter of eligible Perrysburg teachers signed up for an optional performance-based pay system the school introduced by the district in December.
Eighty-six of 310 eligible staff members received a $1,500 one-time bonus for opting-in to the system, which awards yearly performance raises and bonuses based on points awarded for milestones like certifications and achievement in students' measured growth. The sign-up bonuses are paid through state grant money, and anyone not on the plan who opts in for next school year can receive $1,000.
Failing to earn the 70 points to get to a permanent raise triggers a one-time bonus that is not added to an employee's base salary. Performance evaluations cannot result in a pay reduction. Teachers will be measured in five categories: professional growth, organizational citizenship, student growth, collaboration and attendance.
