NSF Grant for “Oceans of Data” Project

NSF Logo

The National Science Foundation has awarded Science and Mathematics Programs a 1.5-year, $260,000 exploratory collaborative DRK–12 grant to work with Scripps Institution of Oceanography to conduct the “Oceans of Data” project. The question to be addressed is: In what ways can research inform the design of interfaces and technology tools that will allow students to use and make meaning of large scientific data bases? The goal is to develop design recommendations and recommendations for further research, in service of effectively extending science cyber-infrastructures to the high school classrooms.
