Description: Built around the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan, the PBS Cyber School uses downhill skiing, snowboarding, and figure-skating to offer problem-solving challenges for middle school students, who are invited to build their own site using the IBM HomePage Creator. "Chew on This" is a student bulletin board for sharing ideas with other cyberschoolers and gathering tips while working on a challenge. Teachers can search for lesson plans for challenges by subject area and/or level of difficulty, and an Olympic Archives page offers links to Olympic sites on the Web. This site has been created by PBS in partnership with IBM, CBS, and the U.S. Olympic Committee, and is "powered by IBM."
