Project Profile

Bioinformatics: The Rutgers Initiative in Teacher Enhancement (BRITE)

Description

Bioinformatics: the Rutgers Initiative in Teacher Enhancement (BRITE) is an NSF ITEST Comprehensive Project that involves teachers and their students. BRITE invites high school teachers to participate in, and contribute to, a series of scientific "Challenges" posted over the World Wide Web, the answers to which require using the computational tools of molecular biology, structural biology, and bioinformatics. Over the period of the grant, BRITE will work closely with teachers participating in a Local Project and remotely with teachers who participate in a Regional Project. As a result of their involvement, teachers will strengthen their existing curricula with the tools and resources of information technology. Several thousands of high school students will benefit from their teachers' work in the Local and Regional Projects.
