Dear discuss-lfm members, It's a little hard for me to contain my enthusiasm about today's broadcast now that I have watched it twice... once live and once via tape. [By the way, even us PTK insiders have to be "creative" about finding a location to watch the program -- a friend of mine has a TV service store and let me watch it live in his store -- all the while I happily took notes and was thankful to have live access!] For me the high points were many.... but I am going to savor them and ask that instead, those of you who have seen the program ****please share your input****. I have already shared my list of "what was great" and "what I would change" with the PTK Team. PTK is very receptive to educator comments -- both the positive and not so positive -- so let us know your reactions. In all, students asked over 20 >excellent< questions of Rob Manning, Wayne Lee, Donna Shirley, and Brian Muirhead. We saw lots of kids featured via clips of the Planet Explorer Toolkit activity, the Egg Drop Activity, and the Red Rover demonstration. Congratulations to the P.E.T. Activity winners who were named during the broadcast: Elementary Level = Mellie Lewis class (MD) Middle School = Mike Reynold's (MI) High School = Janet Cook (CO) All P.E.T. participants are winners -- but we did promise to select one class per grade level -- these are the classes that over the duration of the P.E.T. contributed most effectively and productively. Congrats to each of the winners who will receive a starter Red Rover, Red Rover kit. I also stopped by for Donna Shirley's web chat (as an observer) and found quite a bit of activity. Lots of interesting questions were asked of Donna about her career, future plans, stresses of being a NASA engineer and Mission Manager. Hope some of you also had a chance to participate. Thanks to Marilyn Wall for sharing her input on today's program. Looking forward to hearing >your< input, too. Jan Wee, moderator
