All, as Kathy mentioned, we're in, and I'll get an initial count of participants.  I'd like to publicize the opportunity on Michigan's I2 K-12 list, which is likely to generate even more interest.  I know that our PIN site, for instance will want to participate.  FYI, the NEA has scheduled Read Across America for March 2-4 this year, so if at all possible we should try to schedule VAP for after that.  More details are coming on RAA.

Hello everyone,

I  hope this message finds you well.

I hope you will indulge me in answering this quick message to ask for a
show of hands regarding who is interested in participating in the Jason
Virtual Argonauts Project for this year.

I will follow up with more details in the weeks to come, and will also work
with James Werle to have the project included on MyK20, where you will all
be able to indicate your interest in participating.

In short, we are planning a model very similar to last year, and the Jason
folks are selecting what the "pull out " curriculum might be for this
year.  They are also working on lining up subject experts, hopefully some
of the scientists and Student Argonauts from the expedition. Early plans
are to broadcast the 1 pm (EST) show each day over Internet2.  The VAP
video conferencing visits with experts is expected to take place in the
first two weeks of March.

Now to the reason for my quick query.  The Jason folks will be holding a
meeting on NOvember 18th with the Pin site coordinators around the
country.   We would like to inform those attending the coordinators
meeting, which states have people ( like you) who are interested in helping
them coordinate the Jason Virtual Argonaut Project in their home state ( or
city).   The Jason folks asked me to get a show of hands, and I told them I
would "roundup the usual suspects" .  Then we will coordinate with the
Jason folks to share with them those of you who are interested.  Of course
we will have to work out all of the logistics beyond that, but felt this
was a great opportunity to get the educators lined-up with the technical

So, please just drop me a line ( please use the list so all can see who is
interested) if you are interested in participating this year.
