Project SAAS, Designing Mathematics and Science Project Enhanced Environments: Spanning Astronomical and Atomic Spaces, is a two year project funded by a grant through the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education. During project SAAS, middle school teachers will meet face-to-face or virtually to learn about using project-based instruction in the classroom. Two sample units, an astronomy unit and a chemistry unit, are included. Teachers will also take a field trip to Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In addition, administrators will be included through webinars and newsletters.
