To participate in a videoconference, a group must register and be scheduled. Registration is now closed. To request an exception, contact the coordinator directly.


Notes and Instructions:

  • The main client for videoconferences will be Zoom. There will be a few videoconferences using Google Meet as well.
  • Students do not need to report results in the videoconference. Rather, they should prepare short comments on how the measurement went, any surpises they found, or questions they have about the measurement. This short (~2 min) report is followed by moderators comments on the results so far and a Q&A. Please see the Videoconference Plan below.
  • Prior to the videoconference, the teacher should help the students prepare questions and comments indicated in item 3 above. The teacher or a designee  should also connect 5 min early to the videoconference to deal with any potential problems with the connection.
