Abstract: After completing her PhD in 1991, “so she would never have to go to school again”, Lin Chambers stepped back into a classroom in January 1997 to talk with middle school kids about a NASA citizen science project. Since then Lin has spoken with students from kindergarten through high school, in multiple states and on three continents, in two and a half languages, in person and through virtual connections. Despite this experience, each visit to a classroom is a new adventure. Lin will share some lessons learned from her experiences that may benefit other scientists contemplating a return to the classroom.
