    My understanding is that it's a not-for-profit that creates Project-Based Learning curriculums and/or instructional best-practices, which are then shared with teachers and educators.

    To the best of my knowledge, I don't think that they are are actual school, other than teaching a variety of educators how to use their services.

    The Buck Institute is a well-know philanthropic agency in Marin County, CA which contributes significant amounts of money locally (they were subject to years of litigation to open the trust to non-Marin recipients) to fund research on aging, as well as educational purposes.

    Do you mean Dominican University? I think it has some sort of affiliation with researchers at the Buck Institute for their graduate level students. Dominican is in San Rafael.

    Sorry I wasn't very descriptive in my post, Buck Institute has some sort of Summer Scholars Program for high schoolers that allow them to do research on aging. I meant if anybody knew information on that program and on the acceptance rate of that program!
