Skype-a-scientist

Microsoft Education has a program called Skype-a-scientist. In this program, Microsoft tries to match a scientist with a class whose teacher is a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (MIEE). I am one such educator. I submitted a request to be matched with a computer scientist since I am teaching Computer Science students. After a month I think, I was matched with a French PHD student studying in Japan. She is studying Aeronautics and Astronautics. In short Machine Learning in Space Science. Pretty interesting.

We had a successful skype meeting this morning. It wasn't so difficult to setup since we live in the same time zone. The students learned a lot not just about their course but also about space. Here are our photos from the session.
