LIS Kids meet Kentucky Kids via DLN

Long Island Sound Kids met students at another NASA Explorer School in Kentucky yesterday via our Distance Learning Network. The live video-conference allowed our Connecticut student scientists to exchance ideas and scientific data with students in a different part of the United States.

The students in Kentucky shared an experiment which focused on algae in providing oxygen for life on earth. They also shared experience with a violent storm wich happend over the weekend . The storm ripped part of the school roof off and created havoc for student homes. The studetns also explained “Derby Day” to our Connecticut kids and told them to watch the Kentucky Derby this weekend.

Perhaps we will get a photo of our Kentucky friends very soon!

Families are asked to report sightings of Japanese Shore Crabs to their Longs Island Sound Kids website.

Kids and parents learn how to identify Japanese Shore Crabs.

Kids try their hand at picking up a crab!

"I did it!"

"I know what Japanese Shore Crabs look like!"

Student scientists teach kids how to tell the difference between male and female crabs.

Japanese Shore Crabs came to the East Coast USA in the ballast water of ships carrying cargo to the US from Japan.

Students tour Space Expo and learn about science and programs at the Talcott Mt. Science Center.

Hamilton Sunstrand brought a space suit! There was a lot to see at the New England Air Museum Space Expo!
