2014 EDU: HG: Community hub for STEM education. Abyss Observatory. HG BeatThis list

Community hub for STEM education.  
Abyss Observatory.  
HG BeatThis list
Great place for educators to start exploring the hypergrid.   A hub with teleports to relevant locations on the hypergrid, including resource materials for creators, major grids, and educational places.  If you are wondering what the hypergrid has to offer for educators, look here.
  • Click a sign. You probably get a map.  
  • If it shows the location, click Teleport
  • Note that they are not using walk-in teleports.
  • I wonder whether walk-in teleports are reliable enough yet.
  • This site makes my HG BeatThis list for Education hub 

Abyss Observatory, the long view 
  • Over 20 destinations related to education 
  • Nearly 30 of the best known grids on the hypergrid.
  • About a dozen destinations with resources for creators.
  • This is not nearly a complete listing, but it will grow.
  • I know this group from Second Life.
  • Abyss Observatory in Second Life

This is community grid Welcome region on the Japan Open Grid. Includes a small meeting area, hypergates to other worlds, teleports to in-world destinations, and a couple of freebie avatars for men and women.

The HG BeatThis list (update 1) 

We need things to make the Hypergrid serve us better. (See Maria's report.)  In the BeatThis List, I will develop a list of what we need and what I think is the best we have now.  I may be wrong.  If so, people will tell me in the comments section.  And this short list can't be all we need.  So I expect to be updating this article.  So use the comments section to suggest more needs.  

HG BeatThis list (2/16/2015)
  • HG market.  Buyers want lots of choices.  As in Amazon.com
  • Kitely market
  • Vehicle Physics.  TBD

Classes, workshops:  Blender Mesh Live Instruction 

Ruby O'Degee offers live basic lessons, live project lessons and (soon) live workshops.
For schedule, see: 
Limited to 9 participants on a first come, first serve basis.  Only 9 participants will be able to enter the Kitely world.  (If you try to enter and get the notice that the world is full, you will need to try another time).

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the navigation bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in a minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day.
