  • We would like to draw your attention to the International GeoGebra Conference that will be held in Linz on August 29th - 31st. It would be great if many of you could join us to celebrate the release of GeoGebra 4.0 and share you ideas with other members of the GeoGebra community.
  • GeoGebra community members can (virtually) send applets to Mars. In a forthcoming NASA project called NASA Virtual Magnet lessons for high school students will include GeoGebra-based quests. We will create a website for the project soon in April 2011.
