Teachers are able to apply for the Best Buy's te@ch award for teachers that use technology to "make learning fun!" I won the award ($2500) last year! Part of how I "make learning fun" is our butterfly project that includes using the resources of Monarch Watch and Journey North.

The award can be used for such things as a new computer and digital camera or camcorder. Good Luck!
