> Dear International Partners,
> Members of the Internet2 K20 Initiative have recently formed a working group
> to explore how remote instruments and data visualization tools are being
> used both within the Internet2 community and among its international
> partners.  A goal of this working group is to expand instrumentation access
> to Internet2-connected K20 institutions in a manner that is mutually
> beneficial to all partners.  In the coming weeks, working group team members
> will be reaching out to investigators who are using remotely accessible
> telescopes, microscopes, sensory arrays, web cameras, ROVs, and various data
> visualization tools to better understand how these tools are currently being
> used. There is significant interest in exploring opportunities to extend to
> these facilities and instruments outside the United States, and to make them
> available to the international partner networks reachable by the Internet2
> Network.
> An example of a successful outreach effort includes Lehigh University's
> Imaginations Project. This project provides middle and high school students
> live remote access to a research quality, near-nano scale Microscopy lab.
> This virtual lab includes full remote control of a Scanning Electron
> Microscope as well as an Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer, an Infrared
> chamber camera to monitor the specimens. The system also provides for
> simultaneous videoconferencing with Lehigh researchers and scope
> technicians.  Another successful program is the Southern Skies Digital
> Science Partnership, a collaborative project between the University of
> Louisville and the University of Southern Queensland. Through this
> collaboration, access to remotely operated telescopes at Mt. Kent
> Observatory in Queensland, Australia, and Moore Observatory in Kentucky is
> available to K-20 audiences within the advanced research and education
> network community in the United States and Australia.
> To learn more about the activities of this newly formed working group,
> please visit:
> If you or a colleague have an interest in speaking to this group about
> remote instrumentation and data visualization resources in your country or
> region please contact James Werle, Associate Director of the Internet2 K20
> Initiative. He would be pleased to introduce you to the working group, and
> to follow up with you individually as well.
> Sincerely,
> The Internet2 International Team
> Internet2 Spring Member Meeting
> April 26-28, 2010 - Arlington, Virginia
