9/22/16: From Mr. Smith of Earth Science and Global Exchange fame: I wanted to invite you and
your students again to join the discussion between the Danish Students and BLS on Monday
October 3rd on issues of energy, culture, politics, and globalization. One of the accompanying
Danish teachers is their physics guy, and the students have been preparing to talk with US
students about these issues. Thanks to those of you that have found in school hosts and more are
still needed to accompany the 24 Danish students during the day Monday. RSVPs are appreciated!
