On March 3 you will be able to be a part of the activities in
Washington DC via the Internet.
Preparing To Be A Remote Participant
If you have not already joined the mail list, we encourage you to
do so. The purpose of the list is to provide information that will help
you plan for the event.
At the Virtual Conference you will have access to:
- The Graphics that are presented in the auditorium.
- A RealAudio signal of the presentations being given in the
- A WebChat room for you to ask questions to the presenters
- A Transcript of the auditorium presentations. (This transcript
is provided in the instance that you cannot establish or maintain a
reliable RealAudio signal. The transcript will be presented through
a Web Chat room.)
- An Electronic Mail address for your questions.
Planned Technology Tests
We plan to conduct at least two online tests. The tests will
allow you to try all of the technologies that you will use during the
Virtual Conference. The dates and times of these tests will be announced
on the Pioneer10 mail list.
We will also conduct weekly WebChats that
will allow you to practice using WebChat. If you are not able to attend
one of these test chats you may want to attend one of our weekly Live From Mars WebChats with scientists and engineers
working on the Mars Missions.
We encourage you to download and/or test the RealAudio
client. It is free software and available for most desktop platforms.
We hope you and your classroom join us for this exciting online event!
