SEED Partners with the Rotary Club of Dover
The Seacoast Educational Endowment of Dover (SEED) and The Rotary Club of Dover have partnered to invest $9,000 to purchase portable document cameras for five Dover schools.  The union exemplifies the commitment of each non-profit to the development of the children of Dover, by providing sophisticated classroom equipment for innovative instruction. 

Also known as visual presenters, document cameras allow teachers to take individual assignments and convert them into class lessons, creating more discussion and interaction, while maintaining students' attention and improving retention. Document cameras are quickly becoming a common apparatus in schools and universities, but are often difficult to procure from administrators who are restricted bu budget constraints.
