Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Computers Deluxe is an intriguing study of various aspects of computers, such as "The Y2K Problem, Viruses, Programming, Safety on the Internet, Computer Security, Medical Technology, and Basic Computer Information."

All of the above goals support the Mission and Strategic Plan of Jefferson county R-1 Schools and help students develop and refine skills which will prepare them for a successful future.
