Here's a chance for your space students to build their own satellite, learn about different types of satellites, their orbits, and how they operate. Developed by M.I.T. with help from Lockheed Martin, the site includes a number of interactive Java applets that kids can use to test out their own skills. A Java-capable browser is a must.

This is NASA's "home page" for school-related information. There's almost too much here, and figuring out where to go next can be a problem. It's a good starting point, though, especially when used in conjunction with the other NASA resources on this page.

tag(s): space (205)

In the Classroom

Open this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector and access the "e-clips." The clips are short video segments that would be an excellent supplement for any lesson on NASA related materials. After completing a lecture, show students a clip to re-enforce the message, and they will be sure to be more interested and see the theories in practical application!

This is NASA's starting point for kids interested in NASA activities. Introduced in June, 1999, it offers dozens of NASA web resources groups into logical categories. Given the hundreds of pages that NASA has on the web, this page should make it easier for students to find information they can use.

CNN offers a virtual reality tour of the International Space Station. It's a great way to explore the station's various components and construction. You'll need a computer with a 166 MHz processor or better, and the Cosmo player plug-in for your browser. Depending on the speed of your modem connection, the demo could take 3-5 minutes to load. It's worth the wait.

Discovery Channel offers a collection of multi-medial and virtual reality demonstrations showing how the international space station will be assembled and function. The site includes explanations of the scientific and diplomatic objectives of the space station project.

tag(s): space (205)

In the Classroom

Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of space exploration. Allow students to access the site on individual computers or the interactive whiteboard to take a closer look at the virtual tours provided of the space station. This site would also be a good jumping point in discussing habitats and human needs. After students have looked at the site, put them in small groups to design their own "space station." Have them include and discuss things that they see as needs, wants, and other objects they couldn't live in space without.

This is a nicely designed site from the Children's Museum of Indianapolis that presents a visual introduction to the solar system, stars, and space exploration. Well illustrated, easy to read, and most importantly, easy to navigate. There's enough content to keep older students interested, but the presentation and images will work for younger students as well.

tag(s): space (205)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Space exploration. Allow students to work on the site in cooperative learning groups - just make sure to include headphones, as some of the intros have sound.

The folks at NASA offer an on-line collection of Shockwave enhanced games and explanations about comets, galaxies, and space exploration. Younger students can browse the basic elements; older ones can dig more deeply into the explanations. Attractive images and movement make this an attractive starting point for an outer space discussion.

This site is the homepage for a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). Based at U.C. Berkeley, this site explains how radio telescopes to listen for narrow-bandwidth radio signals from space. Such signals are not known to occur naturally, so a detection would provide evidence of extraterrestrial technology. This site offers software to become part of the project.

tag(s): space (205)

In the Classroom

Participation in the project requires downloading software and establishing a username on the site. Check with your administrator to be sure that your school computer will support the program.
