Hi, my name is Jim Edson and I am an associate professor of geology and science education at the University of Arkansas-Monticello. UAM is a small institution with an enrollment of about 2500 undergraduates and about 100 in our graduate education program. We are located in the southeast corner of the state in a region sometimes referred to as the delta (from a geological point of view, we are on the western edge of the Mississippi river alluvial floodplain). I teach courses in geology, a methods course in science for elementary teachers and graduate education courses in the use of technology in teaching science. I also run a node of the FrEdMail bulletin system for the area K-12 schools, serve as the state science teachers association newsletter editor and direct the annual regional science fair. This spring I plan to conduct an acid rain project on the internet and FrEdMail for 6-12 grade students. We will be using the Lawerence Hall of Science (GEMS) curriculum publication "Acid Rain" as a guide and will exchange data electronically. James E. Edson, Ph.D. Assoc. Prof. - Geology/Science Education Dept. of Natural Sciences, University of Arkansas at Monticello Monticello, AR 71656 501-460-1966 Internet: firstname.lastname@example.org FrEdMail: email@example.com
