Discovery Through a Scientific Lens

Barrett's Project Discovery & Project Interaction teachers, & ELL, Reading, & Classroom Teachers were awarded a $10,000 Toyota TAPESTRY Science grant. The 2006-07 grant supported student participation in lessons that incorporate the Jason Project, NASA Explorer School experiences, Virginia Science and culminated with the creation of video podcasts by fourth graders. Recently science podcasts created by 2nd grade students have been added to this blog.
