Discovery Connect: Build It Bigger with Danny Forster!

I asked Matt Monjan to line up some Discovery talent for our first Discovery Connect webinar of the year.  When he asked me if I had any requests I said, "Just get me someone from the biggest show you can!"  And I have to give Matt credit, he took me at my word!  I don’t think Discovery has a ‘bigger’ show than Build It Bigger with Danny Forster! 

As host of Build It Bigger, it is Danny’s great honor to give Discovery Channel viewers a closer look at some of the world’s largest engineering projects — from the Arizona Cardinals stadium to the tallest building in Madrid. Given his morbid fear of heights and his healthy suspicion of giant stone crushers, though, it’s just not always his great pleasure.

From New Orleans to South Korea, Russia to Spain and even aircraft carriers in undisclosed locations, Danny has been behind the scenes of the biggest construction sites around the world.  On Thursday, September 13th at 1pm EST, he will be sharing his stories with you!

This webinar will be a live conversation with Danny, the host of Build It Bigger.  He will provide an exclusive glimpse at the show behind the show.  The presentation is perfect for  teachers to share with their students and there will be ample opportunities for him to answer questions.  We have added a new feature to our Discovery Connect webinars to make
it easier for you to share the event with students.  The audio from the
teleconference will be sent through your computer speakers as well.
This should make it simple to amplify for a classroom or auditorium.
If your students would like to be able to ask questions live, a
telephone connection will still be required though.

Danny’s Discovery Connect will be limited to 200 seats, so register early!

    FYI…when you enroll the time is scheduled for 1:00 am…woops. I may be sleeping and have to pass if this is truly the case. : )

    Check your school calendars. I just realized that our schools are closed on Sept. 13 for Rosh Hashanah. I’ll have to back out of the webinar. I don’t know how to cancel after I register. Hopefully, you can delete me if you need room for someone else (or tell me how if there is a way).

    Don’t worry about it MaryAnn, I’ll take care of canceling. I didn’t realize that it was on a High Holiday, but we can’t reschedule it unfortunately. Thanks for letting me know though.

    Thanks for such a great opportunity! I have signed my class up. We are going to do some great pre-show research and try to come up with some good questions.

    This is an excellent start for our school year. We are beginning a year of engineering focus as part of STEM program with the NASA Explorer Schools. We’re going to have 3 classes participating.
