New STAR and final Discovery Connect of the 07-08 school year

Welcome to Michigan’s newest STAR member, Brian Lancaster, from Hamilton Schools!  It’s great to see the new members from Hamilton Schools after their recent fantastic “Day of Discovery.”   

For school districts still in session on June 11, there is one more Discovery Connect opportunity for teachers and students.

WHEN WE LEFT EARTH: THE NASA MISSIONS presents the dramatic story of the space agency’s pioneering, awe-inspiring missions, to commemorate the first 50 years of space exploration. The story of NASA is the story of man’s greatest adventure, of man’s great ambition, and of man’s endeavors to go – quite literally – where no man had gone before. The series blends astonishing re-mastered archive – 100 hours of original NASA footage, much of it never seen before -with first hand testimony from the men and women who embarked on the greatest action adventure mankind has ever undertaken.

Discovery Education would like to invite you and your students to participate in our first ever “Virtual Premiere”, followed by an exclusive Q&A session with When We Left Earth Executive Producer Bill Howard.

On Wednesday June 11th, share this exclusive video with your students the very day that it premieres in Discovery Education. Simply log into Discovery Education streaming and do a search for “When We Left Earth.”  You’ll find the video and can watch it with your students.  Then at 1pm EST, gather your students together to chat directly with the executive producer of the series. He’ll share the stories behind the stories as well as answer your students’ questions.
