Science How? Webcast

Paleobiology: Unearthing Fossil Whales with Nick Pyenson
January 6, 2015 •  12-12:30 p.m. (CT)

The Fairfax Network and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History have partnered to bring Smithsonian resources and expertise to students and educators.

Dr. Nick Pyenson is a paleontologist at the National Museum of Natural History. In this webcast, students join him in uncovering fossil whales in Panama, Canada, and Chile as he probes into the evolutionary mysteries contained in fossil whale skeletons. Students in grades 6-8 learn how paleontologists deal with large fossils and see how modern digitization techniques can be used to study a paleontological site.


Following are our recommendations for viewing the broadcast via the Internet (note that the video stream cannot be captured or recorded without specific software) remove for next program:
• You must have Windows Media Player version 8, or later, to view the video stream.  (Note: If you are using a Safari for Mac, you need Windows Media® for QuickTime, by Flip4Mac™.)
• You need a high-speed Internet connection such as a cable modem, DSL, T1, etc. A dial-up connection is not sufficient to view the stream. Internet protection services such as firewalls may prevent you from viewing the stream.
• Use a presentation station or a projector to show the video when the entire class needs to view the content. If you have a class of 20 students watching a video stream on their desktops, 700K per stream totals to 14M of bandwidth—that is just for this one class.
• Use a wired PC for video/audio streaming. Wireless networks have limited bandwidth and can easily be saturated by video streams.
• There may be some loss of video quality. The quality of images and sound depend greatly on the quality of your Internet connection.
