Stella4D

http://web.aanet.com.au/robertw/Stella.html

Robert Webb has just released his newest software, Stella4D. Webb reports, "You can investigate 3D and 4D geometry, watch 3D cross-sections of 4D polytopes animating in real-time as the slice cuts deeper, see 3D projections of 4D polytopes rotating in 4D, and even see their 3D nets. This is also the only place where all 1849 known uniform polychora can be seen."

My NASA Data Teacher Workshop

http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/

NASA Langley Research Center will host MY NASA DATA Summer Teacher Workshop 2007, July 29 - August 3, for teachers of grades 6-12. The workshop will focus on the implementation and use of earth science data sets developed for students in grades K-12.

Participating teachers will explore topics in atmospheric science and the educational application of data sets, with a focus on lesson development. Applications must be postmarked by April 30.
