Funded by NASA, Retool and Enhance was a two-year development project in collaboration with the West Liberty State College SMART-Center. PLM, the SMART-Center, and other content experts used existing NASA materials to develop software simulations and curriculum materials for use by the national NASA Explorer Schools program. The project resulted in two CD-ROM software packages — Motions and Forces and Earth and the Solar System — that focus on middle school physics and astronomy.
