    Dear video viewers,

     

    Welcome and thank you for coming to learn about IC4, a project to study collaboration that takes places across boundaries of culture, country, language, and STEM experience. It is bringing academic reward, engagement, and joy, we have found, to its participants in a growing number of countries.  We eagerly hope this kind of collaboration becomes an abundant feature of future informal science learning and schooling, and hope this project helps uncover effective ways to reach that future.


    Please comment if you can – what are your overall impressions? Are there specific questions you have?  Do you have suggestions or ways we can work with you?

     

    We also welcome your comments on the research side of this “research in service of practice” project.  We rely on a quantitative ethnography called Epistemic Network Analysis, on Activity Theory, and on focused attention to affective and social variables in building academic depth in STEM learning. If you have thoughts on any of this, we also welcome your comments.  On behalf of the IC4 students, staff, teachers, and supporters, thank you again and enjoy!

    Hi Mark,

    thank you for your questions! I am coordinating the activities here in Finland. Our school system is very flexible, so clubs are often organised here during the school day, but we also have after school activity here. Here it is possible to integrate IC4 into everyday school work. In one school the students have participated in an online meet-up of IC4 during their "night school" event. In this way, it was easy to communicate with students from Pittsburgh area.

    Eric and colleagues, this is truly a boundary-crossing project. Can you say a bit more about the kinds of activities your students work on together? You had mentioned digital artifacts, so maybe that is a good place to start. I am also wondering how you coordinate the time and efforts of teachers around the world-it makes me wonder if the "intersubjective understanding" that you mentioned also applies to the educators who are part of your network. Lots of questions, sorry, but the work is fascinating.

    Hi Mark!  Thank you for the kind words.  The digital artifacts are generally videos, made with any of a number of editing or production tools, on android, windows, and apple platforms.  We are also working on sharing computer code and we have a lot of students who collaborate over Sway.com, which is probably the students' most favored way to co-create digital media that is formatted.

    As far as coordinating time and effort, in each country we have a facilitator who manages club meetings, usually after school or on Saturdays.  For the actual meetings - well, we work hard at it, and find pockets of time.  For example, a Friday night in California corresponds to a Saturday morning in east Africa or Finland, agreeable times to meet.  I have awakened many times at 3 or 4 am for sessions with partners in after school sessions.  On more than one occasion, students in Kenya at different schools have had permission to stay at the school into the wee hours to collaborate with their American partners.  Not every meetup is extreme though, and we find ways (like people in professional fields that have widely differing time zones) to accommodate!

    And finally, your wonderfully insightful question about intersubjectivity.  Why weren't you around when we were starting a little over a year ago.  You seemed to get right away that this issue applies to educators.  But, um... we did not get it!  It took a lot of jaw-dropping interactions for me to realize that using the same words had different meanings to a lot of people, and using different words had the same meaning.  It is utterly fascinating.  And I wish we could have seen as clearly at the outset what was visible to you in a 3 minute video.  Thank you.

    Eric - To what extent were the youth involved in selecting the activities that they engaged in? Do they all engage in the same activity or all their subgroups by age or interest? Are they learning together as they work online - or sharing their their learning in parallel processes. 

    This project is meaningful on so many dimensions. As another commenter wrote - I can see its application even across cultural barriers within my own state. I look forward to following your progress and problem-solving as it all unfolds.

    Jennifer - I have the wonderful opportunity to be a teacher facilitator for a group of middle school students at South Fayette, outside of Pittsburgh, PA.  At first, the students are able to choose their own topics, based upon personal interest.  When they first create their introductory Sway, they list their hobbies and interests, as well as anything else they would like to share with one another.  When partners/groups are first chosen, they are grouped according to interests.  In their initial online meetup, the students decide upon a topic to study/research, collaborate upon, and create a media project collaboratively.  Recently, however, we asked students to choose topics from the UN Sustainable Development Goals (https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/susta... We then grouped students based upon which topic they wanted to research.  My middle school age students have worked with students from Finland who were younger then them, as well as students from Kenya and Namibia who were older.  Typically, when they decide upon their topic, they also assign roles such as project manager, video editor, researcher, etc. - but there may be more than one student in some of the roles.  The students work asynchronously for the most part, but schedule online meetups to share progress and provide feedback during and at the end of the project.

    Jennifer - for example in the collaboration between Finland (Vantaa) and Pittsburgh that Shad described above, the students met in an online meet-up. During this meeting they planned together what kind of video they would like to do. The common project was set up and after that students have been creating their videos both separately and together, I mean that they have communicated through Slack by sharing their unfinished videos and commenting them. From the Finnish side I can say how amazing it is that this kind of collaboration encourages and motivates the students to talk in English, and teach the contents of their video to others. The club activity also interests other students in the class. So far five students of one class have been communicating with the South Fayette students. However, last time when I met the club the class teacher said that in fact now the whole class (20 students) are creating videos for the project, because the rest of the students had also asked to participate in.

    This is great work especially taking into consideration the global aspect of this study and in deed kenya can go further on this to help in bringing together the students from across the country to heal the differences between communities who are many times closed in thier small ethnic enclaves. Now that the Government of kenya through the minisrty of education has started 102 STEM MODEL SCHOOLS , this idea of collaboration among them on line would really enhance integration among the students on their innovations and projects! Congrats to the groups and more so the great team behind this noble idea and more so Prof Eric!

    John, I am only vaguely aware of 102 STEM Model Schools in Kenya.  Is this one school per county?  (I somehow remember 102 counties in the Republic).  We never could have engaged partners in Kenya without your partnership.  I still make people laugh when I tell them about the strange man driving me around who did not care about my "important" schedule and who made an unplanned stop in Nairobi next to some torn up corrugated metal and told me to get out of the car.  And on the other side, Kibera and within that, St. A school before it moved to the new building.  #youchangedmylife

    Learning science while breaking down cultural/ethnic/national boundaries, that’s a win-win for sure! In regards to the latter can you provide some details on the kinds of affective and social variables you are collecting (and how) for the epistemic network analysis and whether this will be able to assess changes in prosocial attitudes such as trust or cooperation? Also, how have you recruited your international partners and do you have plans to expand?

    Kevin, thank you so much for your comments and excellent questions about our project!  For ENA, we're coding for self directed (including identity, self-awareness, motivation, etc.) and social (including help-giving, socially shared regulation, cross-cultural disposition, etc) constructs.  Our data comes from reflective interviews, and written reflections, and global meet-up interactions, and we're looking at a variety of comparative contexts for the analysis (ie by location, age group, experience in IC4).  So we could see how constructs for participants can change over the course of their participation in IC4.

    To the second question, our initial international partners stemmed from Eric's relationships from previous work in Finland, Namibia, and Kenya.  From there, other sites have been added by referral and vetting for sustainable partnership.  While we hope to add more sites in the future, we've been very careful to not expand haphazardly in order spend time with getting a new site oriented.  We want to ensure commitment in participation, which takes a dedicated teacher leader to be a reliable onsite contact with the students.  But, we welcome inquires-- especially from continents we haven't reached yet!

Bringing people around the world to collaborate, interact and to see the world as a small global village. Am really impressed, I can recall the first time ic4 started, I didn't believe it would go to this extend but all in all, we thank God for the daily progress. I would like to congratulate you for joining UNESCO...

    Eric, 

    Thanks for allowing Denis and Ateamate to demonstrate their competencies. Am looking forward to seeing the next team of 'Denis & Ateamate from St. Al's and Mpesa Academy in Kenya, and from the schools in Namibia. That's the joy of believing in the youth. In Africa, the strategy is harnessing the demographic dividend of the young population. A confident, creative and collaborating youth is the input from IC4 Project. The natural modeling of the 'facilitative' role of teachers, like what Edwin and Cyrus are doing, is optimal for developing lifelong learning skills among the youth.

I would like to hear more about your strategies for developing and sustaining positive relationships among students across national, cultural, and ethnic boundaries within these digital communities. How did you foster these relationships? You mentioned that students were involved in finding and negotiating shared meaning. What did this process look like?

    Thank you so much, Megan!  Appreciate your positive feedback and questions.  The relationships are fostered between sites when they work both synchronously (via online global meet-ups) and asynchronously on projects in small teams.  They'll usually start with an online global meet-up to meet each other and discuss a plan, then work asynchronously via communication method (ie email, Slack, Google Hangouts, iMessage) and timeline they agree on. We observe most of the negotiated and shared meaning during online global meet-ups-- for example, when checking in on the their project progress and trying to work out how to combine their efforts together cohesively.  And it unfolds a little differently with each team.

    I have been interested in developing citizen science projects in schools across the country where students in Georgia would collaborate with students in Montana for example, and one source of projects is IIASA based in Austria but working in Kenya and around the world, so it strikes me we could have students across the world collaborating as well.  It seems challenging, but you have accomplished it with this project.

    Dear Midge, thank you.  I am currently in Finland, and your comment makes me think about discussions we are having here about the project, which actively involves kids sharing outside of Finland.  But the discussions involve focusing especially on within-Finland interactions, especially between youngsters in SAMI tribal areas in far north Lapland, those in more rural areas, and then in the more populous south central and southwest areas.  With only 4-5 million people, the country is almost as large as California, and has several diverse populations within the country.  So we are starting to think about within-country interactions, also.  And, after seeing your video, I am trying to think if there is any way a module can be fitted for this kind of distributed collaboration.  Thank you again.

    What an exciting project--thank you for sharing it in your video! I am wondering how much structure or support has been helpful to foster online collaboration? It's often challenging enough for people who are all in the same room to come with an idea together and execute it. Are there certain "cyber" related supports/guidelines/tools that help these online teams collaborate productively?

    Dear Miyoko,

    It actually takes a fair amount of structure, at least for us, to situate students so that they can readily interact with one another and do so freely without wondering about connectivity, or what to discuss, etc.  But a conjecture we are chasing is that sometimes it is easier in distributed settings for people to come together than in f2f, in some conditions.  There is a comfort factor of being in one's home environment and culture that appears to ease some forms of collaboration across cultural boundaries - and, in a sense, it scaffolds or primes later in person collaboration.  It is a direction we are pursuing, anyway.  And thank you for your kind words.  I keep purposing to connect with some of the cool projects and work in Ithaca, mostly with makerspace projects, and looking over your project makes me realize there is another super cool project.

    Miyoka, I guess I would ask the same question of your ornithology project.  I love your project, and you have succeeded in building a major following.  I think you must possess some tacit knowledge about building followership, but more importantly, it seems that the videos you produce would be/should be objects of interest to our digital makerspace community,

    This video show us all that quality education has no boundaries, and that borders do not exits. It is amazing to experience how students, and teachers become one team producing project ideas, helping each other to enhance knowledge, and to share the  richness of cultural diversity from across the oceans, and the mountains. This global collaboration involvement, has positively change the way I teach, the way I collaborate with colleagues, and the way my students work/collaborate with me. It is truly an amazing experience to have the opportunity to learn from students and great teachers across the globe.

    Dear Israel, you are one of the champions of this effort, because in part you guide us with your voice of expertise and hard-won real life classroom wisdom.  And, in part, your classroom dynamism and authentic and knowledgeable care for students is amazing to see.  Las Vegas won the lottery with CCSD signed you.  :)

    Thank you Dr. Hamilton,

     This accomplishment to see students learning from each other around the globe is due because we have a such a great team of collaborators that truly care about students enhancing leadership team work skills. Yet, I like to add that our students are the real heroes willing to collaborate with peers and teachers, and to share with us that they have so much to teach us all. It is priceless!

    IC4 is an exciting novel idea. I have interacted with some of the students who have used IC4 and the confidence and passion they exhibit while explaining their projects and what IC4 entails is overwhelming. I congratulate the great work; Zach and the IC4 team have been doing in Kenya. Keep up the good work!

    The Finnish students have really enjoyed this project. Taking part to online meet-ups and communicating via Slack has been exciting for them. It seems that collaborating really motivates students to take photos and shoot video clips about STEM phenomena, create videos about them and share them which others. They are also very curious to watch videos that other student have done. And, also just talking with others and getting to know new people seems to be very interesting for them.

    The success has been due to visionary leadership by Eric and mentorship of the emerging leaders. Believing in the young generation, valuing effort rather than the final product makes the learners collaborate freely and set own expectations. 

    I have seen transfer of mantle for coordination, support and mentorship in California and Kenya. Denis and Ateamate; Cyrus of Mpesa Academy; Zach, Kristine, Danielle, Helen, Ramirez are the many Eric's I salute for the IC4 Project.

    We need to pursue suggestions for more research insights, and creating nodes to work with such initiatives in Georgia and Montana 

    Cheers to the team

    The concept of bridging geographic and cross-cultural barriers using education and technology is truly inspiring.  While this example uses global context, it is just as applicable within borders - a true testiment to its universally appealing construct.  I am inspired to know that STEM learners have the potential to utilize this platform!  My hope is that IC4 will continue to gain momentum and wide-scale adoption.

    Dr Birch, thank you for the good words.  I think our main challenge is to move from the construct to working on ways to explain how students change in the process and what consequences that has for future learning environments - hence, the research side of the project, and the use of epistemic network analysis.

    Measurement of outcomes is always the hardest part of any project with numerous intangible benefits.  I would think the key is to focus on a set of specific outcomes with meaningful impact to project sponsors.  Increase in student grades, a pre and post cultural survey of social awareness, or standardized testing increases (in the case of the CA students).  I really look forward to reading the results from this next next phase!

    We are working on trying to develop a new instrument on cross=cultural development, which will trace how cross-cultural dispositions change.  We had hoped this to go this year, but it seems likely that it will not be at least until January.  But you raise good points about focusing.

    I love that the participants talk about fear of the workplace or STEM being neutralized through the meet ups. That strikes me as a neat outcome that may not have been originally expected. Like Steve said, I'm curious to hear more about how the outcomes are captured, especially those that are so illusive and hard to measure. This is awesome work!

    Dr. Thackeray,right - this issue of neutralizing anxiety is something that was not expected. And, it is a conjecture still, for this phenomenon:  why do kids find it so easy - and joyous - when perhaps in person that affinity is not such a natural occurrence.  It is fascinating, and we think that this safety from your own culture dynamic is at least part of the explanation.  And thank you for the kind words!!

My highlight on IC4 has been seeing students working together on a common project building on each others’ knowledge and learning science practices through intercultural experiences.

    Thank you Doreen, collaborative learning on the IC4 project has commonly been illustrated when IC4 members learn something together or work together to search for understanding/solutions or create a product of their learning. Also members actively interact during meetups to share experiences and take on different roles.

    The IC4 is definitely a great learning experience for all involved.  In the current global milieu, where nationalistic and narrow world views appear to be on the rise, the IC4 Project that brings teenagers together from different cultures, languages, nations and continents in a networked learning environment, no doubt, is a refreshing change.  The potential outcomes from experiences of students learning collaboratively about STEM, producing educational contents and at the same time gaining much needed firsthand knowledge of their peers from other cultures can not be overstated.  Perhaps, similar projects could be replicated in other fields particularly in areas that focus on the core competencies of the students in different countries.

    Well said Amaechi, it is hoped that sustained support for this project will result in the active engagement of the young in the search for practical solutions to problems. A wealth of potential for innovation and creativity exists in all countries and continents involved: all we need to do is to give learners an opportunity to develop their skills and embrace STEM as a vital discipline in the development of their society.

    Well done Dr. Eric and the video is amazing.IC4 project has enhanced learning experiences from classroom to project based for STEM. Students have developed confidence and sharpened their public speaking skills. In their quest to learning it has helped the students improve in mathematics and science subjects. It has also helped bridge the social-cultural gaps across the continents.

    Thank you for sharing about your project! I run a similar program connecting international youths through virtual channels under the themes of biotechnology and science communication. One of the challenges we faced was the language barrier. While most of the students could speak English, those that could not do so fluently struggled and it prevented them from participating in our global meet ups on video calls and in messaging each other, even with a translator present. How did you overcome the language barrier? Another question is about the technology. In some of the countries that participated, technology was not readily available for all the teens (including stable internet in the region). Things we take for granted, like mobile phones, wasn't always an option. Did you provide each hub with technology or was it a requirement that they provide their own? Did each hub have to meet certain requirements to participate? Thanks for your insights! I think there is so much we can learn from these kinds of international programs.

    Ivy you mention about leadership qualities and it has made me reflect on the shared leadership among IC4 members. Everyone is encouraged to take a lead as appropriate to task and context, each student's experience and expertise is valued and drawn upon as a resource. Collaborative activity across boundaries of subject, role and continents are promoted.

    I think one of the things that has changed my thinking - as it relates to leadership hybridity - it to watch how leadership both fluctuates and depends on both strong leader/distributed leader modalities, and shifts organically.  The successful groups are the ones where the shifts are subtle and don't hurt feelings but inspire trust and confidence in one another.

    Tabby, thank you.  We try to capture or marshal their understanding, but there is an intersubjectivity challenge between researchers and students, and not just between students!  Students have every hanging conceptions of what it means to learn, and every changing understandings of what it means to do something with someone else, and it is challenging to pull out a connection between those two.  We are trying to do that with our ENA analysis.

It is quite exciting when you hear students mentioning slack while some of us learned about it after our secondary education. These are some of the skills for 21st Century.

    John, through slack students have shared information and ideas at the same time it has helped smaller groups with narrower, more specialized and differentiated domains to form and function effectively. We are still learning on how such technologies and platforms can support an experience of togetherness that makes a community a social container for learning together. Hopefully such platforms will allow various groups to take initiative, develop roles, create subgroups, projects and meaningful conversations.

There seem to be a range of skills apart from the STEM knowledge that the students are gaining from this ranging from collaboration to communication. Keep up the good work! All the best.

    I am proud to be a part of IC4.  We have been involved in research for several years.  This project provides many opportunities for academic, social and global interactions.  The engagement is higher than in a formal classroom.  The students get to research and think about global and local issues and how they interconnect with other member locations.

    It is such a learning experience to watch the students to brainstorm on ideas and find out that students across the globe share the same interests. 

    The projects have developed using more than one science.  The students learn that not only is the world connected but that all the sciences are connected.  Each issue can be viewed through many lenses.  The world of STEM opens up the world to the students.

    The multicultural diversity of the environment in which the program seeks to build is my greatest joy in this research. But I still have many questions on my mind. To what extent does this program seek to build the awareness of inclusion and contribute to the fight against racism? I simply ask this question due to the many experiences from people who have gone through thick and thin in similar manners in person not virtual as in this case.

    The question is pertinent and inclusion is a strand we could pursue once the gains on what we are doing become solid. Nevertheless, the project transcends social class, and as the students collaborate, they get so immersed in the tasks that they somewhat forget the social circumstances around them. St. Aloysius Gonzaga in Kenya might be a classic case of this.

    As much as the social issues are diverse across and within the countries involved, how this initiative targets learners with special needs might be worth pursuing.

    Thanks for bringing this out.

    Congratulations to all the team involved in this great idea. I'm a true  beneficiary of the interdisciplinary team, it has a great potential of  building a stronger team to disseminate knowledge and information. I'm interested in getting more about the scalability and sustainability of the digital content?

    It has been a great privilege and honor to work with the IC4 team.  The work the goes on behind the scenes from our teacher leaders at each site and especially our fantastic project leaders: Eric, Danielle, Kristina, and Seung Bok is truly amazing.  The support structure that has been established for this project really keeps it moving forward and evolving.  There has been a lot accomplished from our first iteration to the present that allows students to explore and share their interest in STEM through collaboration and creating media.  Our students really enjoy connecting and learning with friends from other countries.  I can't wait to see what the future brings as we learn and grow together.  Thank you, Eric, for inviting me to participate in such a meaningful experience!

    This is very cool and appreciate you sharing with the wider GSEP community!  I think it is great that the team has been able to forge a collaborative approach to this project, since having done this in the past on a smaller scale, it takes lots of relationship building and funding to develop a deep infrastructure to be able to continue the work with minimal interruptions.  Looking forward to more updates and publications!

    Friendly greetings Dr H and Ms D Espino from Okahandja , Namibia. Thank you for the updates on your future engagements at UNESCO. Congrats also to Ms Espino for the upcoming graduation coming Saturday.

    Kudos to you and everyone for introducing IC4 to our student community at the Okahandja Schools, although it seems it's only JG van der Wath SS that is still actively meeting.

    This international collaboration which are connecting young people all over the globe is very commendable and makes me so exciting. Although our group is very small I believe with time that it will grow and become one of the best co-curricular activities for subjects such as maths, science and technology. I think our learners are really enjoying the interaction with students with other countries. .

    Thank you Dr H once again for introducing the project to our school and learners. The benefits can only be endless in forming holistically educated human beings for the future.

     A wonderful video put together explaining IC4 to the world. Thumbs up to the team who created the video! IC4 is a platform that allowed me to connect with other students on the other side of the equator, kilometres/miles away! It has opened me to much diversity - the culture and way of thinking of other students! It is not only fun but also educational! My favourite topics must be Maths and Technology and so many other students do share the same interest which makes collaboration effortless and fun. Looking forward to meeting more students and creating videos.

    I have met so many people whom I can give thanks to Ms. Espino, Dr. H, Ms Lux, Mr. Bok and so many more! 

    Lastly a big thanks to Dr. Hamilton and Ms. Espino for introducing us to IC4. I appreciate the chance given to be part of the IC4 community!

    This is really wonderful and amazing. Aside from the promotion of STEM in young students early education, I love the innovation of using improved technology to achieve that. creating a social remote environment for young students from different cultures to collaborate together, enhance their curiosity, creativity, knowledge, thinking... This is a big up to the Ic4 team - congratulations!! 

    Some few questions (maybe already asked):

    (i)  Does this involve primary?/secondary?/college? students of all levels?

    (ii) Is there any plan to scale up the project in other countries after this methodology has been proven to be useful?

    This project, represented so artfully by Jenna Welsh's creative skill is one part of the interaction - the other equally important part of the communication is the comments (156 of them!) related to the video's message. We carry our culture in our language and with this project, since our language is mathematics and technology - we share a common culture!  Here is a word cloud of the key words* that we have generated together in this forum.

    Ron,

     

    Hope all is fine in Colorado.

    As usual, you questions evoke deep reflections and soul-searching. Perhaps we need to look at ways in which some of the activities within IC4 can be mainstreamed within an emerging school culture. Working within clubs in schools is a great idea which might not be resource intensive. However, we must in the coming months think of how to sustain the international collaborations. I have no immediate answer but I see openings, at least in Kenya, which I may share later after some testing moments for the thoughts.

    You must remember the final discussion in Helsinki with Eric, and am looking forward to a similar opportunity to listen to the two of you discuss fundamental constructs from alternative perspectives.

    Please share more insights on sustainability from Boulder Language Technologies!!!!

    Reading through the comments, it's evident that what we have in IC4 is a Promising Practice. From where we are, and with whom we interact, be it at research level, policy level or practice, we have a humble obligation to share, just as we've done with the video showcase. 

    Am looking forward to the teams in Kenya and Namibia, at least and other sites joining the Regional Conference for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education in Africa (COMSTEDA) and share the IC4 experiences in Maun, Botswana (http://smase-africa.org/index.php/resources/tes... Helen, Danielle, Kristina, Zach and the amaing team should back-up the presenters and provide conceptual (and probably, logistical) support!

    Hi Eric, A wonderful project! It reminds me of a TERC project called global lab developed by Bob Tinker. The affordance of modern internet technologies allows a much different experience of ‘connection’ and learning for students. I also think seeing oneself as a global citizen in regard to STEM and other issues is important and probably quite impactful in kids thinking about their future lives. Still worry that a digital divide in technology access and schools’ capacities to produce such learning opportunities is an obstacle for students in our most under-resourced communities. Frank

    Frank, agreed about the digital divide, though we have been able to work in many areas that are quite underresourced.  I am beginning to realize something about the digital divide w.r.t. the proliferation of educational technology purchases in poor areas or countries.  I think a main issue is that in areas where technology is dropped in - it can do wonderful things, but maintenance and refined use of the technology remains a terrible problem.

    It is so cool to hear from you!  Thank you for your comments.

    This was a dream of an individual for the world some time back before it became a reality.Congratulations to Dr. Hamilton, Danielle, facilitators and all participants.You have really ensured that dreams are indeed realities if one believes in the course.

    Going by the comments of the viewers, I am impressed that the inspiration generated by the video clip is great. It reminds me of words of the late  Prof. Stephen Hawking that our ability is not limited to physical activities but infinite to freedom of our minds.Indeed, IC4 has changed my approach of content delivery from analogue to digital mode and has widen the freedom of learners in innovation especially in the field of science.Watching students think of ideas and visual them into real projects or write scripts is a great achievement especially when they collaborate from different parts of the globe.

    I am convinced now than ever that the generations to come will see IC4 as the major booster of technology integration in learning.It has simplified content mastery and delivery to those that really need it wherever they are.Despite the challenges that the students encountered during the process, they still managed to put together the pieces of their work into one deliverable project within the groups.

    Kudos!

    Edwin does have that distinctive and compelling style!  

    Edwin, your effusive comments are so wonderful to read.  There is so much we need to do to make the model more understandable and usable, but your leadership and assistance makes it so worthwhile.  Thank you!

    Hi everyone!

    It’s Jake from Spring Valley High School, Las Vegas. First off I’d like to congratulate you all for all the amazing work you’ve worked! It’s been such a pleasure to meet and work with people all over the world. I feel so proud to have been a part of such a fabulous group. This was my first year in the IC4 Project and it has been amazing. There has been some obstacles along the way but despite this we were still able to conduct research and make outstanding projects. Once again thank you all especially Dr. Hamilton for making this a possibility!
