Abstract

The challenges many science teachers face are an already crowded curriculum, requirements to integrate technology, and the pressures of high stakes testing. How is it possible to afford teachers a way to teach critical health/science content, raise students’ interest in science, cover mandated science standards, and use technology effectively? These were among the goals that were set for a new web adventure series, N-SQUAD. Results from recent field tests with middle school students indicate that several of these objectives were realized. The project is supported by a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism/National Institutes of Health.
