Now this should be a blast! My friend Rita Karl, Director of Education at Challenger Center for Space Science Education invited me to do a live webcast. Thanks Rita! It will give me an opportunity to present directly to classes lots of the stuff I’ve been doing here at the Blog. We really hope students across the U.S. and beyond might be able to tune in and get a deeper sense of their world in a greater space. I’ve also written up ideas for teachers on how to leverage the webcast with activities and lessons in the classroom.
For a description of what I’ll be talking about, information on how to tune in, and how to put this webcast to work in your classroom (or at home if you homeschool) check out the latest NCESSE News at the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education website.
See you Thursday!

Finally got to watch your webcast from the archive at http://www.challenger.org/programs/ccwebcast.cfm
I just wanted to share that I absolutely enjoyed your presentation! The simple yet effective models were ingenious and inspiring. For the last few weeks I have been following a video lecture series by Alex Filippenko which I found very exciting and inspiring as well.
When my spare time clears up a little I thought it would be fun to contribute some web- or software-applications serving as educational models, simulations, or as teaching tools. I could not only deepen my understanding of what I’m currently learning but also use the opportunity and learn more about some new web-technologies as well. If you always wanted to show and visualize a concept on your website, feel free to let me know. I’d love to play and learn with it. At no cost of course I’m not even sure how much time will have in the next few weeks/months.
Anyway, thanks for the webcast!
