“Plate Detective” was developed as an outgrowth of an NSF project that led to the Pangea Mat & Cutter. The data sets were developed in collaboration with XVIVO, Inc. and derive from the videos associated with Pangea Mat & Cutter tool. Dr. Simanek and Mr. James assembled “Plate Detective” from this content. This tool, in its present form, is a sustainable product, being distributed to teachers at cost.
