Texas DIG Blueprints Partners

Created in 2007, the Cyber-ShARE Center of Excellence brings together experts in computer science, computational mathematics, education, earth science, and environmental science. Cyber-ShARE and the Science Education Resource Center (SERC) at Carleton College will lay the foundation for the technical infrastructure that supports communication, collaboration, and access to the blueprints. SERC will serve as a repository for the blueprint web pages, which will also be accessible from the DIG TEXAS and CyberShARE websites. Read more about this project
