Abstract: Enhancing math and science education for elementary school children as well as opening their eyes to new interests and exciting career possibilities is the goal of a major research and outreach effort known as Project STARS (Students, Teachers, and Resources in the Sciences). Established in August 2002 at the University of South Florida, STARS is the collaboration of seven USF researchers from the colleges of engineering and education, the Institute on Black Life, and public and private elementary schools in Hillsborough County, Fla.
