Elementary School Classroom
At an elementary school, 18 students in a combined
4th and 5th grade class participated in the
Classroom infrastructure. The classroom had 3
computers, but only one (Macintosh LC575) with access
to the Internet via 14.4 modem connection. The
teacher had attended the training day before the start
of the project.
Sample activities. In addition to acquiring
MR images, students in this combined class sliced
cucumbers and kiwi fruit to get introduced to MRI
vocabulary and techniques. The teacher created an MRI
primer booklet for her students. Students recorded
daily observations in their chick embryology logbooks.

materials for the classroom.
