Abstract

This paper is a preliminary report discussing initial results of the five year Partners in Science project. Partners in Science is a project linking K-12 students and teachers with practicing university, industry and agency scientists using networked technology, with the aim of increasing the practice of authentic, project-based math and science. The project's goals are to: 1) Improve the student's understanding of science by designing and conducting their own research; 2) Effectively utilize technology as a part of the learning and teaching of science and mathematics; 3) Bring active scientists into the teaching and learning process, both in and out of the classroom. Research data gathered from teachers, students, and scientists indicates that the project shows promise in each of the three areas.
