Hi all. Yes, thank you Andrew for the introduction.
It is actually a chat session (you are correct, no video conference (—so you can participate from home, a coffee shop, library, office  or anywhere!). You will actually be watching the Nova Science Now episode and chatting at the same time. Below is a screen shot of a previous classroom so you can get an idea of what it is like. Your participation would make the experience amazing for the students. Please let me know if you  are able to join us.
Many thanks!

Dear AI faculty and AI friends,

I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in volunteering for a medium sized event with some middle school and high school kids tomorrow. The deal is one hour spent over chat (I think it's chat as opposed to live videoconference) with a total of 50-100 school kids from around the country, who will have just seen a nova show which focusses on the future world with AI and robotics and will have a bunch of questions.

Please let me and Katrina (cc'd) know if you'd be interested in helping out at one of the two times below (warning, note they are central). I think it would be fun and I'd do it myself except I am enmeshed in meeting all of tomorrow.

Hi Professor Moore,
It was great to speak with you and I hope that someone from you university can join us on our two online screenings this week. Below is information to share:

-          This week’s program:  NOVA Science Now:  What’s The Next Big Thing
Watch the full episode here: http://video.klrn.org/video/1801365037/

-          There are two screenings on Wednesday, November 4
               11AM CST   https://ovee.itvs.org/screenings/jy3uo
                3:30PM CST   https://ovee.itvs.org/screenings/kgb78

-          Our screening is about 1 hour long and that includes a question/answer session for the students.

-          We usually have between 50-80 students on with us each week---sometimes full classes join!

-          We would like at least  1 person from your university on each screening…feel free to have more than 1 person join us if you feel like it would be beneficial. All we need is a name, headshot, short bio, and e-mail address for each person who joins us from your university.

-          The students are usually VERY engaged and ask fun questions and the questions are usually typical middle and high school questions…entertaining and easy.

Attached is a graphic that we use to promote this week’s class. Feel free to share to help to explain what our objective is.

Feel free to call or e-mail me with questions.
All the best,
