Monsanto fund awards $3.7 million to Washington University for school science van program

motion, and ecology.

"This program incorporates many of the intellectual resources here at the university," said Edward S. Macias, executive vice chancellor, dean of Arts & Sciences, and Barbara and David Thomas Distinguished Professor in Arts & Sciences. He added, "As part of our mission to be a community resource, we are committed to helping local schools better prepare their students in science. An enrichment program like this one can be an important first step."

In addition to the science outreach office, other Washington University departments are involved in the project. Graduate students in the department of education did a review of early childhood programs, and will develop evaluation plans. Olin School of Business graduate students Tanya Fagaly, PMBA 15; Tycho Ferrigni, PMBA 14; Max Harris, MBA '05; and Jordan Stadler, MBA '05; worked with Glenn MacDonald, professor of business, to research costs and operations.

As the project moves into the design phase, faculty and students from the School of Art's Visual Communications Research Studio will develop concepts to demonstrate how the vehicle might communicate its content. The studio will also explore several approaches to the design of the curricular materials, which will be an important form of communication between the program and teachers.

"This project is a perfect fit for our skills in visual information design, as well as in brand development," said Scott Gericke, director of the Visual Communications Research Studio. Gericke, D.B. Dowd, professor of art, and Heather Corcoran, assistant professor of visual communications, will provide some of their own design services as well as guidance and direction for the students.
