Abstract

"How come space is so dark if it is occupied by trillions of stars that are all so bright like our Sun?" asked a Des Moines second grader. His question was answered by three very different people: a physics teacher, a high school physics student and a retired attorney. All gave slightly different answers; the student received a rich and immediate response to a question that could not be answered with local school resources. This student's opportunity was made possible by his school's participation in the IOWANET computer conferencing network. The following article will help teachers understand and appreciate the structure of IOWANET and the way in which it will be implemented. We will also provide examples of how students are already using this powerful technology in the classroom to network state-wide and nationally.
