Project Parallax

Project Parallax is a collaborative effort between faculty at the University of Virginia and the Henry County Schools funded from the U.S. Department of Education. The grant is focused on using curriculum as the vehicle for talent recognition and development in elementary students. Our goals are to increase teacher’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) content knowledge and their capacity to provide appropriately challenging STEM instruction differentiated to meet the needs of gifted and talented students. Our curriculum uses Problem Based Learning infused with differentiation and dynamic media, to provide students opportunities to exhibit and extend their talent.
