Holly Garrett's special education students at Parkdale Public School in Hamilton, Ontario, pick over the ruins of Mayan civilization in Belize and see volcanoes explode on Jupiter's moon Io without ever leaving the classroom. With the help of satellites, Ms. Garrett takes her students live to these far-flung places. By working with the JASON Project, Ms. Garrett's students have shown remarkable development in their reading and mathematical skills, and are learning far more about geography and science than they would otherwise.
