DULUTH, MN (Northland's Newscenter)---Kindergarten through 5th grade students at Lakewood elementary school in Duluth will soon incorporate a high tech learning device into their classroom.

It's called a smart table and its similar to an I–pad with a touch screen.

The school received a $75 hundred grant today from The Quest Teachers and Technology program.

The smart table will be set up in the library to make it available for all students to use.

"State of the art technology that our students get the advantage of," said Kim Bolf, a third grade teacher. "We integrate technology in our curriculum, every teacher in this building does throughout the day, every day, and its just another tool for us to cross–curricular the students with different forms of technology."

The Quest program awarded $100 thousand in grants to students throughout Minnesota.

Lakewood Elementary is the only school in Duluth to receive the grant.
