Title:  The Center for Learning Technologies in Urban Schools (LeTUS) Program
Description: The LeTUS program is a three-year, project-based, technology-integrated middle school science curriculum for grades 6-8. Topics include global warming, water and air quality, force and motion, communicable diseases, and ecological systems. Students conduct scientific investigations and use interactive computer software, scientific visualization, and graphing tools. The WWC identified five studies of the LeTUS program for middle school students that were published or released between 1990 and 2011, but none meet WWC evidence standards. The WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the program on middle school students. Additional research is needed to determine if the LeTUS program is effective for these students.
