This pioneering book explores the role of the Internet in the rapid development of a novel form of science education: authentic student-scientist partnerships (or "SSPs"). Contributors present examples of different projects and programs for the K-12 classroom enabled or enhanced by the Internet and other technological advances. Such student-scientist collaborations as the GLOBE Program, Project Aquanaut, Earthwatch and Mars Exploration are presented in detail.

Industry Reviews
