The Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Rocky Mountain PBS have teamed up to pilot a science education initiative called the "R@dius" project that uses the public broadcast network's DTV signal to datacast media-rich educational content to more than 400 Denver middle school students.

Rocky Mountain PBS is working with Chantilly, Va.-based datacast technology firm SpectraRep on the project, which will be held Nov. 12 from 8:15 a.m. to 10:05 a.m.

The students will interact with Dr. Kirk Johnson, a paleontologist at the United States Geographical Survey CORE lab in Lakewood, Colo. as he explores Denver's ancient fossil beds. He will talk about the scientific method and explain how scientific research relates to their lives and history.
