  • ON EDUCATING LARUE: Gifted and talented students sail into science

    Thomas Edison, the inventor of the incandescent light bulb, movie camera, and phonograph, is quoted as having said, “I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.”

    Carol Shelton is finding that those words apply to education as well, turning the work of rote learning into fun activities for her students. 

    The retired LaRue County Middle School science teacher is introducing students identified as gifted and talented to aspects of engineering, acoustical engineering and mechanical engineering.
