During the course of the S/MORE project, various NASA experts will be available for live interactions with students. These scheduled events will take place on WebChat only.
WebChatWebChat is a technology in which you type brief thoughts while others are doing the same thing. There will be regularly scheduled WebChats with S/MORE organizers and others who drop in. These sessions can provide a chance to get familiar with the system before a scheduled conference with a NASA expert.
This link will let you visit the Moderated ChatRoom.

As additional WebChat sessions with NASA experts are scheduled they will be listed here. If you plan to participate in any event, please RSVP for each event to Andrea by sending a brief Email note to firstname.lastname@example.org. This RSVP is very important, since it will allow us to ensure that the chatroom does not become too crowded.
No WebChats are scheduled at this time.
