ADDITIONAL PROGRAM INFORMATION:

LIVE E-MAIL INTERACTIVITY OFFERED: LIVE or TAPE carriage?
    From 13:00-15:00 Eastern on April 11, PTK offered the opportunity for teachers and students to interact via a simple drop-down menu appearing on the WWW with many of the NOAA and NASA researchers seen on camera, or encountered online.

   While the March 7 program was entirely pre-taped and serves as a video introduction to the interactive project, April 11 was fed live from NOAA's Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK, home to NOAA's tornado chasers. While we urged all stations to carry the March 7 program either live or on tape, the April 11 program was an exciting event that will have even greater impact if carried live nationally.

   Additional information about the entire project, including the availability of an original 64-page Teacher's Guide, worksheets and a Multiple Media kit to support the programs, and the project's full-featured CONTINUING CONSTRUCTION website may be found at: http://passporttoknowledge.com/storm

   If you have any questions about program content or promotional opportunities available to stations (such as bulk purchase of printed Guides, or links to and from the LIVE FROM THE STORM website where the Guide will be available in PDF format) please contact PASSPORT TO KNOWLEDGE at 973.656.9403 or ptkinfo@passporttoknowledge.com.
