Cobb Tank Show to Air on Cobb edTV Throughout January

What do “Crossfit Kids”, “Bringing STEAM to the Mainstream” and “K’Nexing Math and Students” have in common?   They are among the 10 Finalists for 2016 Cobb Tank competition where teachers pitch their innovative ideas for classroom instruction in hopes of receiving grants to fund their projects.

Cobb Tank is the brainchild of Cobb County School District Superintendent Chris Ragsdale and is modeled after the popular TV show, “Shark Tank,” where a panel of “sharks” or judges determine whether the educators’ ideas are worth funding.
