About this Grantee

Mr. Stein and Mr. O’Malley have developed the “Techno-Immersion Project,” a group of cross-curricula units through which fifth-grade students mentor fourth-graders to conduct research and develop a creative presentation of the results using technology. Working in teams, students choose a topic for research—Native American studies, slavery and civil rights, geometry, or endangered animals—and select an effective medium to present the information. At the conclusion of the project, each team presents their research to their teachers and families.
