UT Student Spearheads Calculator Donation to Knox County School

A year ago, after learning that many high schools were desperate for high-end math and science calculators, UT Knoxville physics senior George Duffy began collecting them one by one. Along the way, he met professor Fritz G. Polite, director of the Institute for Leadership, Ethics, and Diversity. On Wednesday, the collection project—dubbed Calculators to Classrooms—donated twenty-five graphing calculators and fifteen scientific calculators to the Paul L. Kelly Academy.
