NASA Explorer Schools invites students in grades 6-12 from across the U.S. and Departments of Defense and State schools to participate in a live video webchat with Zareh Gorjian. Gorjian is the lead animator and software engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory located in Pasadena, Calif. He will be discussing some of the projects he has worked on and how an animation or graphic is put together from start to finish. Gorjian will be able to connect what the students are doing in the classroom with a real-life career. The hourlong live webchat begins at 9 a.m. EST on Nov 23, 2011. You do not need to be a participant in the NASA Explorer Schools project to participate in the webchat.
Submit questions during the chat through a chat window, or send them to NASA-Explorer-Schools (at) mail.nasa.gov.
