The Moon Over Us is a collaboration with schools in Beijing. It will run from December 1  to January 31. After the first project we will be continuing with additional collaborations. 

In the project, students aged 10-16 and their teachers from around the world share information about the moon and discuss this information by commenting on each others web pages.

这个项目让学生学习关于月球在空中的运动。在这里,来自世界各地的学生和教师分享关于月球的信息, 并且在iCollaboratory网站上讨这些信息。
