The waterproof memo boards are ideal in any educational situation when paper is not good enough. The transparent boards can be placed onto an overhead projector. This means that they can be given to groups within a class to jot down ideas and then placed on the overhead projector in order that the group members can explain their ideas back to the class. They are also an ideal waterproof notepad for making notes out of doors when doing field work or playground work. They are also useful for use during PE lessons for keeping scores or noting down teams or tactics even when it is raining or muddy.
