| Case Study Elementary School Students in Alaska Send Love Around the World Follett Challenge 2018 Grand Prize Winner A single student from an isolated school in the mountains is ready to progress to calculus, but none of the other kids are prepared. A group of high-achieving students at a small, rural school are eager to take aerospace engineering, but there are no qualified teachers in the region to teach it. Aspirational students at an under-resourced, inner-city high school are ready to take an advanced STEM elective, but their school is unable to fund it.
