This is the third publication in the Streaming Science EDIS series focused on how to use mobile hardware and software for engagement with your target audience. This new 6-page publication of the UF/IFAS Department of Agricultural Education and Communication focuses on a model called Scientist Online for live webcast electronic field trips (EFTs). Through Scientist Online EFTs, Streaming Science connects university scientists and Extension professionals with PK-12 students around the world for small-scale presentations, demonstrations, and discussions. Written by Jamie Loizzo, Caroline Barnett, Christine Krebs, and Gabriel Spandau.
