Really short notice opportunity for today (Friday) @ 10:30am eastern. This is pretty awesome, one of our textbook sized satellite BGAN units has made its way into the Republic of Congo! National Geographic Explorer Shah Selbe is a conservation technologist. He is in Odzala-Kokoua National Park in Congo’s remote north-west, one of Africa’s oldest national parks.

If your classroom would like a camera spot, with such short notice just send me an email with your classroom's details and I'll get back to you ASAP: ebtsoyp@gmail.com

One more camera spot for James Ketchell: Ultimate Triathlon
November 23rd @ 10am Eastern

James Ketchell was in a bad motorcylce accident several years ago and told by his doctor that he'd have to scale back his active lifestyle. James responded by rowing solo across the Atlantic Ocean, climbing Mount Everest and cycling 18,000 miles around the world. He called it the ultimate triathlon.
