As one example of how these organizations will participate in Skype in the classroom, NASA's Digital Learning Center will feature various projects where students can learn how to prepare a space vehicle for liftoff, help scientists and engineers to explore the basic principles of matter and design their own spacesuit mission patch. Participating classrooms will also discover what it is like to live and work in space as well as being introduced to basic robotics.

These new organizations will join more than 38,000 teachers already working together on 2,000 live global educational projects. Teachers can take advantage of these valuable resources by signing up for free on the Skype in the classroom website.

Once registered, educators will be able to explore the Skype in the classroom collaboration spaces, access a variety of content from these organizations, learn about new and exciting ways to utilize Skype video calling in their schools and connect their students with a global selection of guest experts.
