 AT&T TO BROADCAST LIVE TO MILLIONS OF STUDENTS TOMORROW
 IN CELEBRATION OF NATIONAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY WEEK
 Tomorrow (Wednesday, April 29) is the day for "Live From AT&T Bell Laboratories!" In celebration of National Science and Technology Week, the world's largest science class will be broadcast live at 10 a.m. (EDT) from Bell Labs, Murray Hill, N.J., to millions of students across the U.S. and in Canada and Mexico.
 The program will be rebroadcast hourly throughout the day.
 Nobel Laureate Arno Penzias, Bell Labs vice president for research, will co-host the telecast with David Heil, of "Newton's Apple," the Emmy Award-winning PBS science series.
 Several hundred students from middle schools in New Jersey will attend the hour-long program, and special events will be held for students in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and elsewhere.
 Notable guests, via satellite, will be Walter Massey, director of the National Science Foundation, and Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), of the Senate Subcommittee on Education.
 The program will also include lab visits, sessions with Bell Labs scientists, a videophone call with Tori Spelling of Fox TV's "Beverly Hills 90210," and a satellite link to former astronaut and Bell Labs scientists Terry Hart.
 It will include a "global message relay," with students in 166 countries around the world sending an ever-growing message via facsimile and electronic mail, using AT&T EasyLink Services and AT&T Learning Network.
 "Live From AT&T Bell Laboratories" will look at communications in the year 2002; the world's longest fiber-optic system and fastest laser, juggling as serious math, and satellite building. It will include a visit to an anechoic chamber, where it's so quiet you can't even hear the "ocean" in a seashell.
 A "global message relay" will involve students in 166 countries in sending an ever-growing message around the world via facsimile and electronic mail using AT&T EasyLink Services and the AT&T Learning Network.
 The Public Broadcasting Service will transmit the program to its 340 U.S. TV stations, some of which plan to air it in the evening or later in the week. The Armed Forces Network will televise it worldwide for its 1.5 million service personnel and their dependents.
 Schools and CATV stations may downlink the non-commercial broadcast from AT&T's Telstar 302 C-Band satellite (transponder 4H, Channel 8, downlink frequency 3860 MHz, audio 6.2 or 6.8 MHz).
 With "Live From Bell Labs," AT&T is opening the doors to its world- reknowned R&D facilities, reaching out to students with a message of encouragement to stay in school, study math and science and consider careers in those areas.
