Planet Vearth sends out call for help

DENVER, CO - ALEC, a virtual supercomputer residing on planet Vearth, will attempt an unprecedented uplink between Earth and Vearth on Friday at 4 pm, Mountain Standard Time, in the Exposition Area of the AAAS Annual Meeting.

The reason for the difficult and dangerous communication is to alert Earth children to Kinetic City: Mission to Vearth, an afterschool club in which kids perform a set of science activities every two weeks and then use their science knowledge to defeat a science-distorting computer virus called Deep Delete.

The Kinetic City Super Crew, a team of heroic young people residing on Vearth, echoed ALEC's concern. "We've faced a lot of diabolical stuff over the years, but this is definitely the worst," emailed Keisha, from the Crew's Kinetic City Express train. "We need to stop Count Sonos and that creep Lord Gruel from launching these attacks. But until then, we'll need kids on Earth to keep generating Kinetic City Power Points and driving the Deep Delete viruses out of the Fabric of Truth."

Since these activities are most effective when done in teams, Kinetic City Clubs are forming all over Earth. Based in after school programs, these clubs receive semi-monthly Kinetic City Mission Boxes, with science materials, instructions and Kinetic City Case Journals to record their activities and other information.

The newest such Kinetic City Club, based at the Wilfley Boys and Girls Club in Denver, will send young representatives to the February 14th event . They will tell the media about their new Club. Tina Martinez, Program Director of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, says they are happy to do their part. "Not only will our kids help save Vearth, but they'll also be learning standards based science content," she explained, "so it's a win-win situation."
