  3. Mission, Impact, & Return on Investment Through participation in partnership programs, teachers around the world have a greater capacity as professionals, developing new skills and innovative ideas. Students demonstrate a greater capacity as young adults who are about to embark on careers in science and technology or become technologically literate citizens. Museum visitors have access to curated collections of the best of science and technology on the Web. Staff have greater capacity as skilled education professionals, setting new goals and objectives for the use of networked technology in museums around the world.

  6. Testimonial of Impact “I’ve been involved with The Franklin Institute since the SLN project began in 1995 and it has totally made a difference in the way I teach. In my classroom, we work in groups on a regular basis and access all kinds of information from the web. Mary Lee Malen and I have four or five projects on the web that we constantly use with our students. This was really the shot in the arm that I needed after being a teacher for twenty-five years.” Gwenn Holtz, Teacher, Levering School Building on Our Strengths and Anticipating the Future
