Dream Project Helps LA Students Think Locally & Act Globally In a community where many residents struggle to put food on the table and avoid a life of drugs and gang violence, an inspirational group of eighth grade students at The Celerity Nascent Charter School in South Central Los Angeles are "thinking globally and acting locally" by participating in The Dream Project-an offshoot of The United Nation's Millennium Development Goals. Studying basic meteorological principles takes on new excitement and significance if it means the student, too, can be a storm chaser and protect lives and property. * Provide opportunities for students to work with scientists and mentors in a language they understand - Internet chats, podcasts, webcasts, social networking opportunities, videos and computer games. * Equip teachers and administrators with powerful tools to manage, assess and track student achievement, and deliver professional development in JASON curricula as well as core science and pedagogy.
