All Washington Local Schools students were released from classes early on Thursday.
It was all to get ready for a night in the district that only occurs every other year.
The 7,000 students took part in what's known as KIA-Kids in Action 2014. This year's theme was inspire, educate and innovate. The emphasis was on technology.
Classrooms and hallways were filled with parents, educators and students checking out projects, exhibits and artwork.
"Each one of the kids was expected to do a class project that infused technology into whatever they were learning, be it math, social studies, English. How can you infuse technology to help you learn that subject matter better?" said Superintendent Patrick Hickey.
Charlie Dodson, a third grader at Shoreland Elementary School, went online. He searched for recipes and made a cookbook. The reason for that is little Charlie wants to be a chef.
"You make most of the food and get more money being a chef" said Charlie.
Then there's sixth grader Noah Feudi of Jackman Elementary School. He too went online to learn about North Korea and its former leader, who might qualify for the Masters.
"Their leader, their dictator got eleven holes in one the very first time he ever went on a golf course. His name is Kim Jong-Un," said Noah.
District leaders emphasize technology is going to drive future education.
That's why it's important to deliver it to all kids, no matter what age, in the classroom and through night's like Kids in Action 2014.
