Palo Verde High Magnet School was one of 25 schools in the US to receive a grant from HP’s ‘Innovation in Education’ program. This grant along with the University of Arizona will help assist in the school’s Annealing Project, which is an “interdisciplinary approach to teaching diversity and human identity.” Students will participate with the University of Arizona’s DNA Shoah Project. The project’s mission is to build a database of Holocaust survivor’s testimony and genetic material as well as their immediate descendant’s genetic material in an attempt to reunite families. This non-profit, humanitarian effort uses a multimedia curriculum allowing the high school students to further learn and develop biology, mathematics and humanities skills.
