July 17, 2002
Give yourself plenty of time to prepare ahead. If you don't already have it, you will need software from Real.com to view and hear the webcast. RealPlayer 8 Basic is recommended for best webcast viewing on MAC's, RealOne Player for PC's. The players are free. For more information on this -- see How Do I Participate.
Next, you should try to look at some of the background information provided, especially the NASA expert's bio. Also, check out the NASA Quest Chat Lesson.
If for some reason you cannot join us for the live webcast, you can input your question ahead of time, and then watch the archive later to see if your question was answered during the webcast. It's not near as cool as being there live, but it is very helpful when there are scheduling conflicts. Also, remember that all of our chat rooms are moderated.
See our calendar of events to participate in webcast, or leave questions in the chat room prior to the event.
