Thanks to the generous donations of the West Fargo Exchange Club, students enrolled in Child Development and Parenting classes at West Fargo High School and the Sheyenne Ninth Grade Center have the opportunity to learn how to care for newborn infants through the use of lifelike electronic dolls. The computerized dolls, created by Realityworks, are simulated to cry if they are hungry, need a diaper change, need to be burped, or even if they are colicky or fussy.
