Project START, a PT3 Catalyst grant, provides higher education arts and science and education faculty in six southeastern states (Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina) with tools and training to help prepare tomorrow's teachers to integrate technology-rich learning resources into the science curriculum.

START Technology Integration Replication Activities

State teams of Master Trainers use START hands-on and online materials to provide training for faculty, preservice and inservice teachers, and others. Click on this link to chart their progress and read about how they’ve used the materials in their own contexts.

START Institutes Photo Album

Project START Institutes, held at the Miami Museum of Science, modeled faculty training modules, and provided participants with opportunities to explore technology-rich, collaborative learning materials, and then meet as state teams to plan local replication activities.

START Planning For Tomorrow!

Project START's Regional Conference was held at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. on November 16-17, 2001. START Master Trainers from all six southeastern states, as well as representatives from consortium partners, enjoyed the opportunity to meet, network, share their past replication experiences, gain ideas for future replication activities, and experience fascinating behind-the-scenes tours of the National Museum of Natural History.

Project START will receive $1,944,886 from the U.S. Department of Education, which is 50% of the total cost of the project. The remaining 50% of the total cost of the project will be financed by project consortia partners.
