PLATO Learning is offering a new scholarship program for middle and high school students to celebrate the launch of its newest science courseware, PLATO Life Science, and to help spur interest in science education. The PLATO Science Academy will provide a one-week, all-expenses-paid scholarship for 40 students to participate in a special customized science program at the NASA Space Center in Houston that will include working with astronauts and other NASA scientists. Schools that purchase more than $50,000 in PLATO science software automatically will qualify for one student scholarship; however, no purchase is necessary to nominate your school to receive a scholarship. PLATO also is seeking volunteers to serve as chaperones.
