THE BRONX - In honor of Catholic School Week, one school in the borough participated in a "mystery" Skype project.

Fourth-graders from Saint Margaret of Cortona used the online video conferencing service as a vehicle to connect with students from other schools.  

Students were not told the other school's location, and had to ask a series of questions to help determine where in the world the partner school was based.

School officials say the project encourages students to develop map reading and geography skills while using technology.
