Dragonfly Web site has one millionth hit
The Dragonfly Web site, part of a nine-year old program making science inquiry accessible to students, parents and teachers, has registered the one millionth visitor on its Miami University server.
Project Dragonfly began with a magazine with parent and teacher guides using childrens research and professional researchers to promote childrens investigation. The magazine is no longer published. However, Dragonflys Web site, www.muohio.edu/dragonfly, is still used heavily by teachers for professional development workshops and communication links.
On Dragonflys site, one can also watch Mars spin, make a mini-water cycle and stack a virtual totem pole, as well as find easy-to read explanations about life around us.
Other evolutions of Dragonfly:
Other faculty and staff behind Dragonfly include Carolyn Haynes, Hays Cummins, Christopher Wolfe (Web site editor), Lynne Myers and Jamie Bercaw, all of Miamis School of Interdisciplinary Studies.
The Web site is maintained with support from Miamis Center for Human Development, Learning, and Teaching. Support for Dragonfly TV has come from the National Science Foundation and Best Buy.
