Collection includes the video program Human Biology for the Middle Grades: A Bold New Approach, 1988; videotapes of team presentations
from the Summer Institute of 1993; one video tape from the Summer Institute of 1991; other miscellaneous video tapes; CD-ROM
of the program's instructional unit on the heart and lungs; other CD-ROMs; and floppy disks and hard drives containing the

The Middle Schools Curriculum Project began in 1987 with the intent to develop a science curriculum that would interest many
diverse students and give them a solid knowledge base. A prototype based on the Human Biology curriculum at Stanford was so
successful that that focus was continued. From 1991 to 1994 Summer Institutes were held at Stanford with teachers and administrators
from 12 diverse test-site middle schools.
