This audio podcast episode describes the Operation Montserrat e-Mission offered by the Challenger Learning Center. Students, working in collaborative teams, communicate with Mission Control via videoconference, and use data from a live Internet feed to track a hurricane heading toward the island. The data also helps them monitor volcanic activity on the island as they prepare an evacuation plan for the residents. Learn more about e-Missions at http://www.e-missions.net/
