Thanks James….I can nudge our microscopy lab to see if they are interested. Do we have an idea of how many providers we want for this event? Maybe we talked about it and I missed it….

Remote Instrumentation "Content Carnival" Proposal 


Goal(s): The primary goal of the proposed Remote Instrumentation “Content Carnival” is to build upon the work already done in the NANSLO/Internet2 remote instrument working group survey project and highlight remote instrumentation projects and resources available to the educational community in a very real and engaged format through live demos, remote audience interaction, and observed participation by schools around the country. 


Format: The all virtual event would run for several hours or a half day type format (say from 11am PST - 3pm EST) to accommodate multiple timezones and maximize participation by schools across the country. We would coordinate 30 min. “demos” of the remote instrument or labs that agreed to participate allowing for a brief presentation or overview by a PI or lab manager and then a “demo” if applicable followed by a live Q&A with participating schools. The half day format would allow for up to 8 30 minute presentations or if we received more than 8 presentation requests we could even run multiple simultaneous tracks or break the event up over two days. The entire event would be run over live interactive video with an “inner circle” of participating IVC sites and a larger “outer circle” of view only sites watching the live webstream. Interactive schools would sign up for only 1 30 minute session so they would not be required to stay connected for the entire four hour half day event. Participating remote instrumentation projects/labs would gain the additional national/international visibility and awareness of their work often key to the educational outreach goals of funded projects. Schools and the national community would gain a deeper understanding of the available remote instruments and labs reachable over advanced networks. 


Next steps: 

- Determine the supporting IVC and streaming resources. KINBER can volunteer to provide BlueJeans IVC bridging for this if desired (possibly streaming as well). Other regional/state networks may have alternative resources/suggestions. 

- Pick a date for the carnival. Sometime in Feb. - May would be ideal. 

- Create a brief proposal format and disseminate to remote instrument PIs/labs inviting them to participate. 

- Determine the schedule based on content providers committed. 

- Create a webpage and registration mechanism (google forms) to allow schools to register for particular sessions. 

- Advertise the event to schools 

- Test with Labs/Content Providers 

- Test with Schools 

- Live event
