Meet the Author: James Ponti
October 4, 2018 • 12-12:30 p.m.

He was a writer on the Mickey Mouse Club, Mystery Files of Shelby Woo, and Clifford’s Puppy Days. Now his writing features the award-winning series Framed! and Dead City. Winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award for Juvenile Fiction, Ponti told a Orlando Sentinel reporter, “I’m happy in this world of books. I love the librarians, the teachers and the kids.”

During the live webcast, students can call in and talk to the author about character development, his writing process, whatever is on their minds. We are accepting questions prior to the October 4 webcast. Students may submit their questions online or via e-mail to Questions@fcps.edu. Please submit questions by September 27.

Meet Dr. Mike Vecchione, a NOAA zoologist at the National Museum of Natural History. Learn about octopods and squids, members of the remarkable group called "cephalopods." Marvel at how they have no backbones, yet boast camera-like eyes and super camouflage capabilities. Find out how Mike uses technologies, including telepresence and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), to study cephalopods in the deepest ocean. See how he is learning about species rarely or never seen before. Consider how little we know about the biodiversity and habits of deep ocean life.  Get Teaching Resources

CavesLIVE
 

The CavesLIVE distance learning adventures are now available as streaming videos with English and Spanish captions at https://CavesLIVE.org and with English captions on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/fsnaturelive. Watch the two CavesLIVE videos anytime:

-- CavesLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure – Scientists answered questions from students during this live, 45-minute program from Luray Caverns in Virginia.

-- CavesLIVE: Bringing Caves and Karst to Light – This 40-minute video explores cave ecology, geology, hydrology, and conservation, as well as human uses of caves.

Both programs explore how caves and their rich underground ecosystems connect to our everyday lives. Specially adapted animals, beautiful mirror pools, sparkling crystals, domed caverns, and twisting tunnels lie just below our feet in many areas around the world and even on other planets!  Also, check out the web site at https://CavesLIVE.org for lesson plans and other resources.

The goal of CavesLIVE is to raise awareness and understanding of caves and karst -- a resource that is seldom seen and considered mysterious -- and connect it to people's everyday lives.
