We recommend treating this event like a virtual field trip to allow for the students to experience the full program. Students should be individually logged in to the event’s Zoom meeting to participate. Ensure that the students are using the latest version of Zoom (Learn how to check for updates).
Individuals with disabilities who need sign language interpreting and/or other reasonable accommodations to participate in this event should contact NLM Communications at NLMCommunications@nih.gov and/or the Federal Relay at 1-800-877-8339. Requests should be made at least five days in advance, by Friday, April 9, 2021.
We are aware that some students and teachers may be attending the event from the classroom. In an effort to take advantage of the in-person classroom, here are recommendations on how to prepare for the event.
All students should individually register for the event, and ensure they are using the latest version of Zoom (Learn how to check for updates). Students should review the program schedule and select their desired break-out sessions (Round 1 & 2) before the event. Earbuds or headphones are recommended.
