What would happen if we invested $1 billion or more in bold education R & D initiatives designed to generate fresh but evidence-backed solutions to some of education’s toughest challenges?

The Center for American Progress (CAP) and the Thomas B. Fordham live streamed the Institute for a “Shark-Tank” style competition, where ten early-round finalists presented their “billion-dollar Moonshot ideas” to a panel of tough judges, all for a chance to win $10,000 and have their idea propelled to widespread attention and potential major investment. Each finalist’s proposal addressed one of these urgent issues:

  • Reducing by half the number of fourth graders reading below the Basic level.
    • Doubling the amount of high-quality feedback middle school students receive.
    • Achieving universal college and career counseling for all students before the ninth grade.
    • Doubling the number of eighth graders who can write an effective persuasive essay.
    • Doubling the number of young women majoring in STEM fields. 

Our judges are:

Kumar Garg, Senior Director for Technology and Society at Schmidt Futures

Lizzette Gonzalez Reynolds, Vice President of Policy at ExcelinEd

Michael Simmon, U.S. history teacher at IN-Tech Academy, NYC

Video Services for Johns Applied Physics NASA NEWSER – NEW HORIZONS & ULTIMA THULE ROCK

MTI wants to salute all our friends who work at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. Metro Teleproductions Inc, has worked with JHUAPL for the past 15 years supplying video services ,this week the focus is on the space probe New Horizons, which last night flew by Ultima Thule, an icy rock floating about a billion miles beyond Pluto.  At over four billion miles from Earth, Ultima Thule is the most distant object ever explored (by Earthlings, at least). 

A huge shout out to John Obrien, Neil Reubenstein, Ben Wong, David Vespoint , Jim Harris some of the great staffers at JHU APL who we have provided Video Production over the past 15 years. Depending on the situation MTI will provide production personnel or video equipment depending on the type of job. MTI is celebrating its 30th year of operations in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia region

Today was a final press conference at the Kossiakoff Center In Laurel, Md.


From CNN:
Mission scientists from NASA and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory have confirmed that the New Horizons spacecraft conducted a flyby of Ultima Thule, a Kuiper Belt object that’s a billion miles beyond Pluto.
Although the flyby occurred at 12:33 a.m. ET on Tuesday, the spacecraft is so far from Earth that the “phone-home” signal didn’t reach us until about 10:30 a.m. ET.
Mission scientists were relieved about the success because there was only one chance to get it right as New Horizons screamed past Ultima at 31,500 miles per hour. This incredible feat was possible because thousands of operations on the spacecraft worked in sync.

“We’ve just accomplished the most distant flyby,” mission operations manager Alice Bowman said. “This science will help us understand the origins of our solar system.”
New Horizons has also sent back a first look at Ultima Thule — taken from half a million miles out, so pardon the pixels.
This is the best look scientists have ever had at Ultima. Before, they saw it as only a single pixel.

MTI  has provided camera crews on the hill since its inception in 1989. The key to a successful Capitol Hill shoot is establishing a key contact, because each building is different in terms of when and where the crew can enter. Parking is always a challenge and you have to factor in dropping off equipment close to the location of where you are shooting and then putting the vehicles in a garage, normally in Union Station
