If you'd like to foster a spirit of cooperation in your classroom, then you will certainly want to read Internet Links for Science Education. This pioneering book explores the role of the Internet and various technologies in the rapid and successful development of a novel form of science education and involvement -- authentic student-scientist partnerships (or "SSPs"). Contributors discuss progress in this newly emerging field, presenting examples of different projects and programs enabled or enhanced by the Internet and other technological advances. Student-scientist collaborations, such as the Globe Program, FeederWatch, the Sun Photometer Atmospheric Network, Project Aquanaut, Earthwatch, and Mars Exploration, are presented in detail.
