The initial project was a semester-long course. The project now includes a new website, Picture-Tell broadcasts, an MCET and Internet distance learning course, and a display area for students in Fernald Hall. In the college course, K-12 educators get hands-on open-ended experiences with live insects used in public schools. Integrated educational units using insects but focusing on art, history, music, and mathematics are developed. How to use educational technologies, including e-mail, distance learning with PicTel and CD-ROM technologies are explored using insect related materials.
