Join the LIVE Microsoft Teams meeting to talk with Science faculty members:

Join the Teams meeting on Saturday, October 31 between 10:30am - 12:30pm

Join the Teams meeting on Sunday, November 1 between 12:30pm - 2:30pm

Guidelines for joining live meetings:

  • Access instructions for joining Microsoft Teams meetings here.
  • Please mute your microphone when entering and stay muted when not speaking (to avoid unnecessary static on the call).
  • When you enter a live meeting, please introduce yourself in the chat with your/your daughter’s name, grade, and current school.
  • If more than four people are in the meeting at one time, please raise your hand to ask a question (using the "raise your hand" function) or type it in the chat.
  • If you do not have the Microsoft Teams app and you are accessing through your web browser, you will be able to access the meeting but you will only see the person who is actively speaking in the meeting. This is perfectly fine, we just want you to be aware.
