The purpose of this paper was to present the findings obtained through a scientific experiment employed using the project entitled, "The Time Zone Tunnel." It was conducted on a eighth grade history class attending summer school in San Pedro. The reason for the experiment was twofold: to attempt to measure the learning which transpired as a result of the project, and to examine its potential as a cooperative learning activity. The project was a History/Geography lesson which took the participants on a make-believe voyage around the world set in the Age of Exploration. The voyage brought them to continents where they were instructed to find demographic information from a listing of countries. Students were assembled together in "crews" and collaborated with their mates to resolve problems when they encountered hazards along their voyage. The results indicated to a high degree that learning was effected with positive outcomes.
