Educators

Dear Educators:

Concerned about meeting state and national standards with exciting, current core science content?

Want to bring light and optics, the electromagnetic spectrum, gravity and motion, matter and energy, Earth's place in the Universe, and today's scientific enterprise to life for students?

Need a mix of video, hands-on and online to engage students with different learning styles?

Then your answer is...

LIVE FROM A BLACK HOLE

LIVE FROM THE EDGE OF SPACE AND TIME
(April 3, 2001 @ 13:00 Eastern)

Debuting in 2001, a "Real Science" odyssey to the most extreme environments in our Universe, live on the web, educational networks and NASA-TV. The latest from P2K, public television's longest-running series of interactive multimedia adventures.

You’re invited to explore the links (to left) to find materials to support your work in class, at home or as informal science outreach.

We’re delighted to have you with us, and wish you success in implementing PASSPORT TO THE UNIVERSE with your students. 2001... it's the perfect year for a space odyssey. But this new P2K adventure is all science fact, and offers innovative, exciting but always practical ways to enliven the science curriculum.

Thanks for your interest in and support of innovative science education.

Onward and Upward,
Geoff Haines-Stiles, Project Director, PASSPORT TO KNOWLEDGE and the LIVE FROM... specials

PASSPORT TO THE UNIVERSE and the two LIVE FROM specials are made possible, in part, by support from NASA's Office of Space Science and the NASA Education Division, and through special cooperation with the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the "Structure and Evolution of the Universe" Education Forum. P2K also thanks NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Fermilab and the "Connections" project (Department of Energy-NASA-NSF), the Space Telescope Science Institute (NASA-ESA), and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
