Chris Quintana and Joe Krajcik have been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation for a project entitled " Zydeco: A Mobile "Nomadic Inquiry" System to Support and bridge Science Inquiry Between Classroom and Museum Contexts" in the amount of $1,648,674 for the period August 1, 2010, to July 31, 2013.

This project will develop and evaluate Zydeco, a system that incorporates a web-based component and mobile devices (iPhones) to bridge science classroom and museum contexts. The Zydeco project will explore how such a system can expand and support science inquiry opportunities for students in the field (using their mobile devices) and in classrooms (using the web component) in a broader, more integrated manner. Chris Quintana is an associate professor of education. Joe Krajcik is a professor of education.
