Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School is responsible for one the nation’s most aggressive STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math – programs for K-12 students. Using Blackboard Collaborate, the school has created an array of innovative programs including a partnership with NASA’s BEST (Beginning Engineering Science and Technology) program to bring actual NASA scientists and enineers into its online classrooms for monthly virtual field trips. Despite having more than 100 6th graders in the program, 100% of the students participated and gave the program 100% in overall satisfaction. Blackboard Collaborate has been instrumental in "bridging the geographic gap” between faculty and students who live throughout the state.
