This announcement is also going into the ANS bulletins ... but we noticed
the Monday, December 21 deadline if you think your school may be interested
in applying. So here is the news from NASA today instead of waiting for the
weekend bulletins. My local schools begin their Christmas break on Friday so
perhaps a teacher or two out there can put this information to good use
before the short deadline.


NASA's Digital Learning Network Seeking Participants for International Event

In February 2016, NASA's Digital Learning Network is teaming up with The
Royal Institution and Faraday Studios for a series of Google Hangout events
in connection with British astronaut Tim Peake's mission to the
International Space Station. The live hour long events will include selected
classrooms from the United Kingdom and the U.S. These classes will pose
questions to Dr. Kevin Fong (author of "Extreme Medicine"), Dr. Steven
Jacobs (Mr. Wizard) and NASA experts. The events will be broadcast live on

The DLN currently is seeking U.S. middle and high schools (grades 5-12) that
would be interested in participating in these events interactively with our
U.K. partners.

Schools, if selected, would be required to conduct a test call in early
January with a representative of the DLN to confirm participation. If you
would like to have your school considered, please contact Caryn Long at
caryn.long at nasa.gov. Inquiries must be received no later than Dec. 21, 2015.
