Seventy five teachers from a variety of disciplines work in small interdisciplinary teams to engage hundreds of students in San Diego County, CA. Teams use Project-Based Learning approaches to work with scientists in partnership to develop student-created media in Spanish and English that communicate various science concepts and career options.

Overview Section

This is a project to engage students and teachers with the rapidly expanding science content available using information technology and through the cyberinfrastructure. Learners seldom have an opportunity to also be contributors, and underserved and disadvantaged students are most often bypassed for such opportunities. The project uses methods that the PI believes inspire student involvement and learning, engage teachers, and meet district/state/national standards.
