Passport to Knowledge is an ongoing series of “electronic field trips to scientific frontiers.” Supported by the National Science Foundation, NASA and other public and and public collaborators it encourages and permits students to interact with... Real Science, Real Scientists, Real Locations, Real Time

Passport to Knowledge uses broadcast TV, videotape, e-mail, the World Wide Web and hands-on discovery activities so that students can actively simulate in their own classrooms the science seen on camera and online. It’s flexible enough so that even teachers with limited time and technology can participate. Targeted initially at middle school students, activities can easily be adapted up and down in grade level to achieve success in elementary and high schools. PTK suggests exciting ways to connect cutting-edge research with math, social studies, language arts, technology and other disciplines while meeting the National Science Education Standards. Online discussion groups provide teacher-to-teacher support, as well as interactive projects promoting student-with-student collaboration.

PTK’s complementary video, hands-on and online materials allow students to relive these unique learning adventures at any time. Students experience the process of doing science—and the need for teamwork, problem-solving, ingenuity and persistence—along with learning about the latest breakthroughs. Online resources provide extensive background, first-person Field Journals, an archive of student Questions and expert Answers, and links to other sites.
