"Through technology, Direct to Discovery is bringing researchers and scientists into the classroom, opening the door to innovation and achievement in a new way."  -- Georgia Governor Nathan Deal

The Direct-to-Discovery program at Georgia Tech (D2D@GT) brings world-class researchers and their laboratories into K-12 classrooms. D2D@GT enables teachers and researchers to collaborate in providing rich, up-to-date science content that inspires, motivates, and empowers experiential learning.

The D2D@GT program features three essential components: the underlying network infrastructure, the enabling technologies, and a collaborative professional development framework. Combining real-time, high definition videoconferencing and direct access to the high-speed global research and education network infrastructure with curriculum development expertise provides K-12 students with a unique, immersive learning experience.

This short video highlights some D2D@GT capabilities.

Meet some of our participating researchers as they explain how the D2D@GT model works for them.
