- Bugscope Teamare you an upcoming bugscope member? or interested in becoming one?
- Guestwe are a class of 4th graders- were on chickscope and decided to see what was on bugscope
- Bugscope Teamwe have just finished setting up preset for a school in florida, they should be on in 20-30 minutes
- Bugscope Teamah cool! a chickscope member.
- Guestif we come back in 20 minutes can we see it too?
- Bugscope Teamif you are interested in bugscope, we'd love to have you. you can apply very easily
- Bugscope Teamyes, of course, you are welcome to sit in on any session
- Bugscope Teamto apply for bugscope: http://bugscope.beckman.uiuc.edu/apply
- 9:33 am
- Bugscope Teamhey that is cool
- Bugscope Teamyeah but i wasnt sure about it, it looked broken or something
- Bugscope Teamhello ms. k, welcome to bugscope!
- Bugscope TeamHello Ms. K!
- Teachergood morning. how are you all doing
- Bugscope Teamwe are doing great, ready to look at some bugs!
- Bugscope TeamSo far so good...
- Bugscope Teamhow are things in florida?
- Teacherthings are sunny :)
- Bugscope Teamcool, we start in 20 minutes right? or do you want to start early?
- 9:38 am
- Teacherno, 20 minutes is fine, I am just here doing set-up. the kids are still in their classes
- Bugscope Teamokay
- Bugscope Teamif you have any questions or need help please just let us know
- Bugscope Teamwe can also be reached by dirct phone: 217-265-8164
- Bugscope TeamHello GiddensJenks!
- GuestHello BugScope
- Teacherawesome. now when the students log on, they are guests and then pick a user name, correct?
- Bugscope Teamms. k, the students should log in as "student", but guest is okay as well
- Bugscope Teamthe students should be able to log on as students
- Bugscope Teambut we prefer student, so we know who is with you, and who is logged in to watch, such as GiddensJenks
- Bugscope Teamthere should be no password for the students
- Bugscope Teamand they can choose any name they like
- Bugscope TeamThe session is now unlocked and you, Ms. K, can drive if you would like -- try things out
- Teacherok :)
- Bugscope Teambye suzzane!
- Bugscope Teamwe'll see yoj on the 11th!
- Bugscope Teamyou i mean
- Guestlol YES you will.
- Bugscope Team:)
- Bugscope TeamI am going to be flying then.
- Guestthere goes my incognito look
- Teacherawesome, thanks :)
- 9:43 am
- Bugscope Teamheh, well, i just happened to remember suzzane, no problem at all
- Guestthat's a nice picture!
- Bugscope Teamthis is a true bug
- Guestsorry we missed our last session
- Bugscope Teamnot a problem mrs. giddens. we understand that can happen. it's nice to see you logged in and preping for your april 11th session though
- Guestthis stuff is awesome!
- Bugscope Teamright now, ms. k, from a school in florida, is preparing for her session in about 15 minutes.
- Bugscope Teamhow is it going ms. k? any questions?
- Teachernot so far, i am just getting used to the controls using the smartboard
- Bugscope Teamcoolness
- Bugscope Teamif you notice a lot of lag (slowness), then try avoiding "click to drive" and "focus". those to functions use the most network bandwidth.
- Guestit's great on the Smartboard! Ms. K
- Bugscope Teamare the kids going to be using computer workstations today, is it all centralized with the smartboard, or is it a mix?
- Bugscope Teamwe see it every way
- Teacherwe are doing a mix. the controls will be on the smartboard and the students are in groups of 3 at their own stations
- Bugscope Team"click to drive" and "focus" use live video feed from the scope, so they need the most amount of network bandwidth. but the other functions use single pics and don't require nearly as much.
- 9:48 am
- Teacheryeah, it looks really cool up there. we will keep that in mind
- Guestme is back - can i sign up my class for this?
Bugscope Teamyes! you can apply very easily, we accept almost every application. http://bugscope.beckman.uiuc.edu/apply

- Teacherthere is no student option on the log in page
- Bugscope Teamokay, looking into it
- Bugscope Teamit looks like our student option disappeared
- Bugscope Teamafter the "Teacher" logs in, the Teacher option should change to Students. but it didn't work this time.
- Bugscope Teamms. k, you can either have your students log in as guests, or you could try logging out and back in again, and see if that fixes it
- Teacheri'll try logging out real quick. be right back
- Teacherk, going to check a computer
- Bugscope Teamwell, it looks like student still isn't there. it's a bug we'll have to fix. it
- Teacherwhen i logged out, it gave me the student option,
- 9:54 am
- Teacherbut... we can just have them log in as guests and they will be student1 etc
- Bugscope Teamok, i'd like to try something,
- Bugscope Teamsuzzane, can you log out and come back in 5-10 miuntes?
- Bugscope Teami'd like to see if a guest on is causing the teacher/student to fail
- Bugscope Teamsuzanne i mean, very sorry about that
- Bugscope TeamMs.K you should be able to use their names, or names they prefer
- Bugscope Teamyeah, maybe just loggin in as student1 and student2, as guest will work.

Bugscope Teamit must feel short-lived to be a butterfly since it only lives around a few days. But I'm sure they dont realize this. Their mission is to eat and reproduce.

Bugscope Teama haltere is a small punching bag like thing on flying insects. it is there to bounce off the body of the insect in flight, and it helps the insects hold it's body during flight. it's a flight stabilizer.
