Some Mandan High science classes to use iPads

MANDAN — Mandan High School is replacing textbooks with iPads for three of its science courses next year.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the school district will buy 104 of the tablet computers for its ecology, physics and honors physical science classes.

Superintendent Wilfred Volesky says it's a pilot project, and officials think the science department is a good one to test it. Students will have access to a wide variety of tools such as virtual labs, and they'll be able to submit assignments electronically.

The project will cost just under $60,000.
