Node 1 of the Pacific CRYSTAL project is based on the work concerning  "authentic science" that we have done in the past. 
Following more recent work, in part studying environmentalism and learning science through participation in environmental activity, we have begun a project of RETHINKING SCIENTIFIC LITERACY (Roth & Barton, 2004). This part of Node 1 is concerned with pushing the theoretical boundaries defining scientific literacy even further. 
Thus, we intend to features such as continual emergence, responsibility, ethics and morality, identity, and emotion integral and irreducible components of a theory of scientific literacy.
