Vicksburg-Warren County School District chemistry teacher Kristy Brannon recently received a classroom grant from the Mississippi Professional Educators. A resident of Vicksburg, Kristy has been a member of MPE since 2009. She plans to use her grant funding for a project entitled “Chlorine Content in Pool Water.” This project encourages students to use mathematical computations, data manipulation and graphical analysis to measure chlorine content in pool water.
