Students at Judkins Middle School in Pismo Beach showcased some new learning tools this morning.
PG&E recently gave the middle school a $20,000 grant.
With that money, the school now has 35 iPads and an iPad lab.
The school says the new technology will improve students' math skills, giving them a huge educational advantage.
"In fact, one of the students I just conversed with in that class, her only exposure to an ipad is here at school. She doesn't have an iPad at home. She's learning skills outside of math that are going to transfer to places all over her life," said Principal Ian Penton.
The school says it's to help them get students into a one-year algebra course right out of middle school.
