Exciting change is on the way! Please join us at nsf.gov for the latest news on NSF-funded research. While the NSF Science360 page and daily newsletter have now been retired, there’s much happening at nsf.gov. You’ll find current research news on the homepage and much more to explore throughout the site. Best of all, we’ve begun to build a brand-new website that will bring together news, social media, multimedia and more in a way that offers visitors a rich, rewarding, user-friendly experience.

Want to continue to receive email updates on the latest NSF research news and multimedia content? On September 23rd we’ll begin sending those updates via GovDelivery.

New learning technologies deliver cultural treasure trove

Jefferson Street in Nashville, Tennessee, once a vibrant corridor of live music venues and recording studios, launched the careers of many iconic blues, R&B, jazz and rock artists. From the 1940s through the 1960s, then-rising stars Ray Charles, Little Richard, B.B. King and many others could be heard there nightly. To help preserve and honor the area's rich cultural and musical heritage, students in the SLaM Lab at Vanderbilt's Peabody College of education and human development have partnered with Lorenzo Washington, founder of the Jefferson Street Sound recording studio. The collaboration is part of a National Science Foundation-funded project called "Bridging Learning in Urban Extended Spaces." The goal of the five-year project is to develop new ways for people to experience and learn about the history of local, urban environments.
