  Project Overview

This project will see students in Grade 9 use the Internet as a resource for information to enhance their resource based curriculum projects and publish online, completed assignments. Students will be required to publish their completed projects which may contain links to various resources. This project will also see Holy Redeemer's "Wall of Remembrance" put on our school web site. These projects will link to the schools project page, STEM~Net, and Redeemer's Home Page. This can be made available through STEM~Net's server.
