Pilot Program Links S&R

"Exploring the World, Discovering God," a pilot program for kindergarteners through fourth-graders, is helping teachers in Catholic schools link what they teach in science and religion class. The project, sponsored by the Institute for Theological Encounter with Science and Technology, is being used in Missouri, Texas, Kansas, and some home schools in Michigan, and plans are already in the works to expand it for grades 5 through 8, as well as for use by Protestant schools. The program's materials, which will be provided free on a Web site possibly as early as this fall, are being shaped by a group of advisers comprised of scientists, theologians, and educators. —Sara Kern
