Signals of Spring SOS - (NASA)

The New York based "Signals of Spring SOS" is collaborating with the Atlantic Seaduck Project as a feature project for student interaction. SOS is funded by NASA and provides students with the opportunity to more fully understand both wildlife and technology. Students and school groups can log on to the SOS website , and obtain a variety of information concerning the ducks and their migration.
       The SOS provides science curricula material for students and teachers, and this helps to meet the needs of schools by integrating many different subjects allowing students to develop skills in earth sciences, language arts, life sciences, geography, mathematics, and technology. Public schools that partner in this program include: New York City; Newark; Jersey City; Washington, DC; and independent schools in Houston. This is an example of how information transfer has been beneficial to the national curriculum.
