The panel members have expertise in the many roles associated with these programs. The representation will include staff from Oracle Education Foundation, who provides Think.com and ThinkQuest as free services globally to primary and secondary schools. Also represented will be the Australian partner for ThinkQuest, as well as students and coaches from winning ThinkQuest teams,an educator and a former judge.

The workshop will begin with an in depth look at Think.com and ThinkQuest; two innovative, educational web based learning experiences. It will also give practical examples of how the Think programs can be implemented and used in schools.
