students, teachers, and interested folks.  During this program scientists
from The University of Toledo, Kent State University, Cleveland State
University, and Ohio State University will discuss what is remote sensing,
current water quality remote sensing research, how we utilize the satellite
information, and demonstrate a 'hands-on, fun' activity where students will
measure water quality using a cutting-edge remote sensing instrument.

Things to be aware of:
**Please remember to only have one computer in your classroom logged into
the webcast.
**People with only dial-up modems will not be able to view the webcast.
They are not fast enough.

suggest that you have a backup lesson for you class in case the technology
does not
work.
