New Journey to Jupiter: NASA DLN Video Chat for Grades 6-8 (June 3)

(June 3, 1:00 p.m. Eastern/10:00 a.m. Pacific; Teachers send questions by Tuesday, June 1 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern/3:00 p.m. Pacific)

Get ready to go to the solar system’s biggest planet! NASA is launching a new robotic mission to Jupiter in 2011. Classrooms are invited to join NASA/JPL engineer Tracy Drain as she discusses why NASA is sending the Juno spacecraft to Jupiter, how it will get there and what it will study. The conversation will be geared to students in grades 6 through 8. Watch the live web chat on June 3, 2010 through: http://dln.nasa.gov/dln/content/webcast/dlnstreaming.jsp.

Tracy will be speaking live via video with a classroom in southern California. All classrooms may participate by emailing questions before or during the live chat for Tracy to answer. Possible topics to consider for questions are the sizes and distances of planets, planet formation and space travel. Teachers can email questions to jplspaceeducation@gmail.com. Questions sent in advance should be emailed by June 1 at 6 p.m. Eastern/3 p.m. Pacific. Due to volume, there is no guarantee that every question will be answered.
