Have you ever visited the town of Mars in PA during Mars New Year? NASA comes and does all kinds of presentations for 3 days. You can see Insight, Rover, and learn all about different things they are doing.

Wow - what an amazing video. This is even better than attending a live workshop because I can pause and write down all these excellent ideas. I love that she posted them all at the end as well. I will be using some of these ideas right away this week in my computer lab. This is one of the best presentations I have ever seen on Virtual Tours and specifically Google Maps and Google Earth. But I learned so many other options as well. Thank you for such a comprehensive presentation. Well done!
