The CS92 "Firefighters" program, built last year in collaboration with Marcella Weinberg's 2nd graders at the Charles N. Fortes Magnet Academy Museum School in the Elmwood section of Providence, was recently featured on Intel's "Innovation Odyssey" web site (http://www97.intel.com/education/odyssey/day_319/day_319.htm). Devoted to innovative uses of technology in education, the Odyssey site noted how Brown students had worked with Weinberg's bilingual students to design, revise and produce a unique program about the history of firefighting in Providence. The Fortes School uses cultural history as a theme for student work and projects across the curriculum in grades K-6, and this collaboration produced a bilingual (English-Spanish) program suitable for classroom and kiosk use.
