Kudos, The LFM teacher kit will be a fabulous resource for all of us educators as we embark on the upcoming Mars missions. It is truly worth the money and I look forward to using it as well as sharing it with others in the education community. Lois and I presented at our state science conference last week. Our session was after lunch so we didn't exactly have a crowd, but the people who came were truly interested. I invited our space grant consortium college coordinator to join us and persuaded her to pay for $200 worth of teacher guides. Staff development materials is a high priority for that organization. I am in the process of refining a grant proposal this weekend. Thanks Lucy for putting your proposal on line. I have added to it, and will share with the other PTK advocates in the near future. I am writing other groups into the rover grant. Another piece of information I just received is that the Planetary Society is currently getting the Rover project ready for MacIntosh computers. The software should be ready--just in time for the positive news on our grants, right! M. J.
