LSU BIOS program joins the Digital Arts Alliance

BATON ROUGE, La., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pearson Foundation today announced plans to support, for the second year in a row, Louisiana State University's (LSU) Biology Intensive Orientation for Students (BIOS) program with scholarships and digital arts equipment. The 2009 class of Pearson Foundation Digital Arts Fellows will use video cameras to document their experiences and pass them along to future program participants. Films from the 2008 class can be viewed at www.pearsonfoundation.org/youth-engagement/lsubio.

The BIOS program, a "biology boot camp," provides students with a short, intensive preview of what is expected of them in introductory biology at LSU, and helps them learn the skills required to succeed.

"Course failure is costly to the student and the university, but through the BIOS program, and with the help of the Pearson Foundation, we prepare students by reducing the time needed for new students to learn and implement the skills required to meet the expectations of college courses," said Sheri Wischusen, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Program Manager, and Assistant Director for Undergraduate Research, College of Basic Sciences at Louisiana State University.

As part of the announced agreement, LSU BIOS has joined the Digital Arts Alliance, the consortium that promotes digital arts K-16 education through fully funded and staffed programs delivered directly to schools and community centers nationwide. The Pearson Foundation is the founding partner in the Digital Arts Alliance.

Each year, the Digital Arts Alliance makes it possible for more than 15,000 U.S. students and their teachers to experience firsthand how laptop computers, video production equipment, and the latest mob
