The University of Arkansas NOVA Team wishes to thank NASA and the NOVA Program for its support of curriculum development and NOVA Chautauqua at the University of Arkansas. We also wish to recognize the staff at Mt. Sequoyah Conference and Retreat Center for their gracious hospitality and exceptional attention to our needs during both sessions of NOVA Chautauqua. Finally, the Arkansas NOVA Team thanks those faculty whose enthusiasm and eagerness to learn about digital technologies and their applications in the classroom made NOVA Chautauqua a resounding success. The exercises contained on this CD-ROM were compiled entirely during the 5-day interval of the NOVA Chautauqua session.
The University of Arkansas NOVA Team is composed of Stephen K. Boss (Associate Professor of Geosciences and Director, Environmental Dynamics PhD Program), Caroline Beller (Assistant Professor of Curriculum & Leadership Instruction, Oklahoma State University), Lynne Hehr (Director, Center for Math & Science Education and NASA Educator Resource Center), and John G. Hehr (Associate Dean, Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences, Professor of Geosciences, Arkansas State Climatologist).
It is our sincere hope that the exercises contained on this CD-ROM will serve as a model demonstrating the power, efficiency, and potential of digital technologies to enhance science and mathematics education across the United States. In closing, the University of Arkansas NOVA Team invites all who peruse this CD-ROM to "Tune in, turn on, link up!"
