A decade of innovative milestones
In 1992, Forman launched its Rainforest Project in Costa Rica: an immersive, ecology-based program. A decade later, Forman was granted a U.S. patent for developing a method of reinforcing a fiber with spider silk. By 2006, another U.S. patent was granted for a farming technique for the Golden Silk-Orb Weaver spider, developed by our students’ field research.
In the 1990s, Forman’s Teaching Symposium saw leading researchers in neuroscience and education descend upon the school, thanks to funds from Time Warner. In 1994, we collaborated with leading institutions on best-practice education: the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Medical Center and the University of Kansas’ Center for Research on Learning.
