For this project, NASA had us use a screen sharing extension for Chrome called Vidyo. If you are looking into setting up a similar experience, this service could easily be replaced with Google Hangouts. Even though we had no prior experience with Vidyo, it was a snap to set up and get running. So if you contact a group who wants you to use a unique conferencing software, do not let it scare you off!

I want to extend a special thank you to Shannon Green, an Illinois Wesleyan University clinical student whose father is the "Mr. Green" pictured above. This collaboration would not have happened without her willingness to reach out and initiate the connection. Additionally, thank you to Jennifer Stolbom and all of the amazing students in her fifth grade classroom who participated in the video conference. Their enthusiasm and inquisitive nature were truly a pleasure to witness.
