This Web Seminar took place on October 14, 2009, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Presenting was Brian Short from NSTA and Tony Rose a teacher at Northside Elementary in Palmyra, Pennsylvania and a National Award Runner-up.

Members of the NSTA and Toshiba teams attended the program and Miz Fischer assisted by answering participants’ questions on the chat window.
