Late Breaks - Think Quest
The ThinkQuest educational Web site building competition is partnering with the Department of Education's TRIO and Community Technology Centers programs, HUD's Neighborhood Network centers, and ABILITY Awareness to bring ThinkQuest's award-winning program to students in poor schools and communities, as well as to students with disabilities. ThinkQuest's guidelines promote mixed gender teams that include members from diverse levels of computer competency who come from various cultural, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. Through its new partnerships, ThinkQuest hopes to reach more students and extend its opportunities to low-income and disabled students. For more information, see www.thinkquest.org.
