Yes, indeed the DVDs are now available on a first-come, first serve basis.

The NSTA has a link to the DVD giveaway page. And the NABT (National Association of Biology Teachers) has written about it, too.

From the NABT:

The DVD's will be given away starting Monday, December 18, 2006 thru Thursday, January 18, 2007. Teachers are encouraged to log on to www.participate.net to request the DVD, which will be delivered within 6-8 weeks.
