On December 13, 2002 as part of the Imagine Mars Project (http://imaginemars.jpl.nasa.gov), Bill Nye the Science Guy and dancer/choreographer Debbie Allen will be combining Science and Art in an interactive webcast broadcasted from JPL's von Karman Auditorium!
Tune in from 11 a.m. - noon PST via the internet or possibly NASA TV (details to follow or check website below) and watch as Bill talks with students, artists and scientists about life here on earth and how it might be different on Mars. Then, get out of your seats, and let Debbie Allen take you and your visitors through an exploration of movement on Mars. How will reduced gravity and strong winds change the way we move? Dance? Debbie and student dancers from her academy will show us their ideas in a choreographed professional performance. Then you and your audience get to try!
At JPL, we are building a workshop around the webcast where local students will work with artists, scientists and other professionals to create projects depicting their ideas of what food, shelter, water & air, and musical expression will be like on Mars.
We invite you to do the same, and will happily help you get connected with artists and scientists in your area. Let us know if you will be airing the webcast, and if we can help you prepare in any way.

Hope to see you on Mars!! :)
