Pinellas County Schools, in Largo, Florida is planning this coming year the Pinellas science project will be expanding to add more teachers. This past year 38 eMentors and up to 100 teachers from three schools (Pinellas Elementary, Morgan Fitzgerald Middle, and Pinellas Park High) collaborated on six 6-week cross-age thematic projects that focused on science and community service. One fourth grader told the program coordinator, Charlie Nauda, that "this is the best day of my life" when he was on a field trip with the high school students. Teachers and students are making projects, class pages, and blogging.
Please come by the student showcase at NECC in Atlanta to see the videos, projects, and example student work on Tuesday, June 26th from 10 am -12 noon.
