NASA is pleased to announce that Discovery Communications and 3M are
launching a series of Web-based seminars to encourage and support
participation by teachers and students in the 2008 Discovery Education/
3M Young Scientist Challenge, hosted by NASA. Any teacher or student
from anywhere in the world can log onto these free webinars.


There will be two sets of webinars, one for students and one for
educators. The student webinars will cover the basics of creating and
uploading videos for the challenge. Students will learn how to create
videos from cell phones, cameras or webcams. They will learn to edit
with or without computers. Most importantly, they will learn that
enthusiasm, problem-solving and communication skills are key to winning
the Challenge.


The webinars focused on teachers will give an overview of the same
skill sets as the student webinars, but the teachers will also be given
an overview of the student competition. With this information, teachers
can encourage students to enter. The teacher webinars, like the
Challenge, will be exclusively for the teachers in the Discovery
Educator Network. ( Becoming a member is easy and registration is free.
