Earthcast Echo - Webcasts During The Year

During the year, we will be webcasting live on various topics. Please join us by listening to the stream and participating in the chat room. (Past events are posted below.)In the past, we have interviewed Col. Joe Kittinger. He holds the record for the longest free fall from 19 miles! His height record was just broken. Students also interviewed Gregory Whitney, NASA, Flight Director. He is also a former student from our school, Rye Jr High School, in Rye, NH. (Sheila Adams - Webcaster)

Earthcast Book Recommendation

via generationgreenthebook.com

One of my students read this book during the summer of 2009 and really enjoyed it. As a matter of fact, the book inspired her to lead a series of Earth Week/Earth Day activities on our campus this coming April. An example of one of the activities that she is leading is a day during Earth Week where we will have 3-4 eco-friendly cars on campus for our community members to see. We'll have a Tesla all-electric roadster, a vegetable oil converted diesel car, and even a hydrogen powered vehicle.
Ask your school/neighborhood librarian to add this to your library!
