As part of a series of electronic professional development experiences, the NASA Explorer Schools project is hosting a 60-minute webinar on Aug. 16, 2011, at 4 p.m. EDT. Learn how to use an innovative air traffic control simulator to engage your students as they explore the mathematics involved in the role of an air traffic controller. In the three-plane problem featured in this lesson, the challenge is to change routes and speeds to line up the planes safely, with proper spacing, at a given route intersection.
