Many San Diego-area children now returning to school will benefit from new multimedia technology developed by teachers who attended a summer 2003 computer-technology training camp at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) on the campus of UC San Diego. Twelve elementary, middle school, and high school teachers who work in Borrego Springs, Encinitas, San Diego, San Dieguito Escondido, and San Marcos schools attended the two-week training course in August called TeacherTECH. The projects developed by the teachers include a highly interactive math tutorial for third-graders, a "Mummies for Dummies" social sciences project for sixth graders studying Ancient World History, and a video-game-style Earth Sciences lesson for high school students that is packed with facts, images, and quizzes.
