Live: October 23rd at either 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. Eastern.
Join us as we take a trip to the "New Star on the Horizon"-The International Space Station (ISS). During this electronic field trip, students will meet some of the engineers, scientists, and astronauts who have played an important role in the development and continuing research on the ISS. Together, with a team of scientists, students and teachers from Space Center Houston, your classroom will be transformed into a Space Station Activity Module. Students will also be taken behind the scenes at the Johnson Space Center. Learn what happens before and during the time the astronauts are in Space.
The ISS is a global undertaking of tremendous scientific and engineering magnitude. Since 1998, 16 world nations have collaborated to construct, operate, and utilize the orbiting space laboratory. The ISS allows scientists to conduct long-term, complex experiments not possible on Earth. Through the space-based research, scientists hope to advance basic science dealing with fundamental physics, gravitational biology and ecology, Earth science, and space science.
When completed in 2006, the ISS will enclose the same pressurized volume as a Boeing 747 and will house six dedicated laboratory modules with seven astronauts. The International Space Station will include three pressurized research laboratories, a centrifuge to provide artificial gravity for research, and crew living quarters.

This Webcast is on the use of multimedia with young children (Early Childhood and Elementary).We will be focusing on the use of KidPix, a program that allows students to create multimedia slideshows. We are also trying something new and seeing about close captioning this WebCast.
