Online Projects

The table below presents the range online projects presently being developed. This area discusses the issues that lead to successful online projects and how to bring research and science education communities closer together. In the table, each project type is linked to a page containing sample projects and their description.

So far Online Projects have been catagorized into three different formats:

  1. Collaborative Projects facilitate the exchange of information and materials between classes and among classrooms.

  2. Data Collection Projects collect and compare data between classes and among classrooms.

  3. Research Projects develop an original research question in collaboration with research scientists.
