Do you know that amphibians are vital to their ecosystems and to humans, but they are threatened with extinction? Dedicated scientists around the world are working to save amphibians, and you can too. Join scientists and researchers LIVE from the National Zoo in Washington D.C. where your class will be able to see a wide range of amphibians from around the world; learn what amphibians are, why they are important, and the threats facing amphibians; and hear about programs that you can get involved in to help save amphibians in your local area.

We aren’t am-FIB-ian around! Register today to participate in this unique event brought to you by the Siemens STEM Academy and the National Zoo!

A downloadable, archived recording will be available in the Classroom Connections box on the right soon after the event. Classrooms and teachers registered for the event will be notified when the archive is available. Click the right and left arrows at the bottom of the box to find the files you need.

I can't find the archived webinar and see that others have also had trouble. Am I doing something wrong or is it unavailable?

I have tried multiple times on various days to access the archived version of the amphibian webinar. I am logged in and I was registered to watch the event. It is not an option as I scroll through the classroom connections on the right. Any ideas?

I was unable to access the amphibian webinar on 12/4. I see that is can be downloaded now but the webinar is not showing up, just a trivia contest sheet and the teacher guide. What am I doing wrong? I've never had this much trouble viewing one of your webinars in the past.

I registered for the webinar-Amphibians. We were not able to view it. Now I am trying to get the archived recording and can not. (Yes, I was registered.) What do I need to do? Thank you for your help.

I am unable to access the archived webinar for my students to view. (They saw the live webinar and many wanted to share it with their parents.) It is not posted on the list of your webinars page either.

My daughter saw this at school and wanted to see it again. After signing up for your service and down loading the file. We now need a newer version of Word? Really? Couldnt't this just be a youtube style video? Would have loved to see it after an hour of trying to get it all set up. I guess we'll have to open a book!

Is there a way to watch this as a podcast at a later date? I am not ready to do this with my class right now, plus I have five sections that I would want to show it to. Thanks

Looking forward to the event. My students really enjoy Discovery Education. We just watched the video about the "Poles" yesterday & I found a Time For Kids article about Polar Bears that worked with the video beautifully.

Nicole - this webinar is not "technically" just for the grades listed above. There is so much information to be shared and we are very aware that we will have audiences of all ages joining us! Please listen in with your class!

Nicole says:

is this webinar only avail for grades 3 and up? I teach 2nd and we teach the frog live cycle so knowing about amphibians and the threat of extinction is important.
