If you are a teacher using the materials in your classroom, we'd like some basic information about you. It will only take a few moments.

Connecting with Other Teachers

Web Chat Discussion Area
This is a place for live interactions with other teachers and adults: some scheduled, some not. Here you type brief thoughts and then send them. All the while other people are doing the same thing at the same time. This should not be confused with Aerospace Team Online chats.

Here you sign up to receive regular updates about the Aerospace Team and the Wright Flyer project through e-mail.
