Partners in Science. [CD-ROM].
Partners in Science students, aided by community professionals, learn science by designing and conducting their own research. Partners in Science brings the community and schools closer together through a mentorship program. Scientists, in fields ranging from wildlife biology to space physics, are in frequent contact with classes and home-schooled students and guide them through their scientific endeavors. As students research their topics, they assist each other and also serve as mentors to other students on the project at different age levels and different schools across Alaska. Partners in Science focuses on helping students gain proficiency in computer technology. Students use these skills for communicating and researching information on the Internet as well as presenting their own data. This CD-ROM provides detailed information about the project. (ASK)
