Several institutions will be demonstrating their AG Nodes on Take Your Child to Work Day, April 26th, and others are welcome to participate.



The demonstrations will take place at the National Library of Medicine Venue on the Argonne Venue Server:




Select Institutional Venues, Government Venues, National Library of Medicine or select all venues, National Library of Medicine.



The currently scheduled demonstrations are from 11 to Noon and 1 to 2 Eastern Time (US).  Four ~1/2 hour demos are scheduled from 11 - 11:30, 11:30 - 12, 1 - 1:30, and 1:30 - 2.  If these times do not work for you, some of the participating nodes can have people available to interact with children at other times.



Participating nodes will take turns giving a very brief introduction to the technology and will encourage children at different sites to interact with each other.  The Tigerboard shared whiteboard will be used to show application sharing.



The Rochester Institute of Technology, the University of Minnesota Health Science Center, the University of Puerto Rico Medical Campus, the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health would be pleased if you joined us.
