Education professor wins $1.2 million grant to lead UF team on 3-D paleontology technology project. University of Florida educational technology researcher Pasha Antonenko is leading a team of UF scientists from multiple disciplines to create a novel curriculum for the middle and high school grades and assist paleontologists working on projects worldwide. Called “iDigFossils,” the project will allow middle- and high-school students who are studying fossils to scan them in three dimensions and upload them to virtual collections that paleontologists and others can access worldwide and reproduce using 3-D printers. It is a collaboration with teachers and students in 10 public schools in California and Florida.
