Overview:

Think Tank is a program that aids students in creating topics and subtopics for research projects.  It then can upload or print these topics into NoteStar. NoteStar is a button that can be added onto the Internet browser's toolbar.  When the student finds information on a site, a notecard is created with information on the site, and allows the student to add notes and bibliographic information. This notecard keeps the topics,  bibliographic information, and the notes from each website in one place for the student.
