Abstract

Science tools that are too expensive for a typical K-12 classroom (i.e. an electron microscope or a radio telescope) can now be accessed and controlled via the Internet. Interactive technologies, such as simulations and remote sensing equipment, provide limited levels of interaction, manipulation and data collection In this paper eight on-line science tools, four microscopes and four telescopes, available to K-12 teachers and students are presented. These tools are made available by a variety of institutions, which encourage various of levels of collaboration among the students and research scientists. The different modes of collaboration that can occur with these tools and levels of use and control are further illustrated.
