I made a presentation at the ePals booth/TCEA 2013 convention re: the NASA Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission 2014/Space Weather Raul Yzaguirre School for Success/Dublin ISD Student Digital Art Workshop:
The workshop process involved an intensive session of learning and project application to make digital art for the NASA MMS [Magnetospheric Multiscale] 2014 Mission and Space Weather. The RYSS eighth grade students succeeded in not only keeping the attention of the Dublin (TX) students, but also making them comfortable with the software and producing gratifying results:
The groups of students were so engaged throughout the two days [middle school – day one; intermediate school – day two] that the teachers present during the process seemed secondary. The RYSS students had successfully gained a skill, and were empowered to convey what they knew to others.
