 Dear Potential Participant
> 
> We are running an e-mail conference (our third to date) for secondary
> schools from 17-27 September and I was wondering if any subscribers to this
> list might like to participate.   The theme of the conference is:
> 
>         "Is IT helping or hindering mankind?"
> 
> The aim of these conferences is to generate discussion, thereby encouraging
> children to consider the effects of science and technology on their
> everyday lives and to think constructively about future developments.
> 
> There are two types of participants in the conference:  schoolchildren and
> 'experts' i.e. people with reasonably extensive expertise in one or more
> areas relevant to the topic for discussion.
> 
> Participating as an expert will not be very time-consuming.  I am limiting
> the number of schools to fewer than one per expert.  The only 'commitment' is to
> answer (briefly, so as to encourage, rather than silence,
> discussion!) up to one question per day of the conference.  This should not
> take more than a few minutes, although some people do like to
> spend longer.
> 
> Please let me know if you would like more details - although there is not
> much more to tell, as participation in the conference is very simple.
> 'Experts' from previous conferences have said how much they enjoyed being
> in touch with young people's ideas on their special subject and the
> response from schools is also very enthusiastic.
> 
> If you think you could communicate effectively with secondary students in
> your area of expertise please do get in touch.
