The ICLCS is funded through an NSF Math Science Partnership grant and is a 
program of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with our 100+ K-12 
partners, Regional Office of Education #38, and A-C Central School District. The 
Institute seeks to prepare rural Illinois chemistry teachers for the 21st 
Century through content, computational tools and teaching methodology, and 
leadership development.

  As part of the program the Institute will be placing up to 120 PIGs in K-12 
schools to further teacher development in rural Illinois.  The Institute has
