NASA Education On-Line Opportunities



Students at 25 middle schools and high schools in 13 states are remotely controlling huge radio-telescope dishes in the California desert from their classroom computers this fall and winter.


Their work will aid studies of Jupiter to be made by NASA's Cassini spacecraft as it flies past that planet. The students are using telescopes near Barstow, Calif., at the Goldstone tracking

station of the Deep Space Network, which the Jet Propulsion  Laboratory operates for NASA.


NASA Quest

NASA Quest connects schools with NASA's people and missions via the Internet through live interactive Web chats,  live interactive webcasts, e-mail, informative biographies and journals, curriculum resources and more. NASA Quest offers the opportunity to communicate with  NASA scientists and researchers and to experience the excitement of real NASA research as it is happening. To participate in this science in action, visit the NASA Quest Web site.



Astro-Venture is an educational, interactive, multimedia Web environment highlighting NASA careers and astrobiology research in the areas of Astronomy, Geology, Biology and Atmospheric Sciences. Students in grades 5-8 are transported to the future where they role play NASA occupations and use scientific inquiry, as they search for and build a planet with the necessary characteristics for human habitation. Supporting activities include chats with real NASA scientists, online collaborations, classroom lessons, student publishing area and occupations fact sheets and trading cards.


JASON is a unique collaboration that utilizes telepresence technology to grade 3-9 classrooms to join in on and interact with ongoing research missions of the JASON team. Before implementing curriculum in the classroom and bringing students to Ames for the exciting broadcast and hands-on activities in the Spring, teachers must attend a one-day training in the Fall. 



What could be more fascinating this season than learning the concepts of measurement, number and operation, problem solving and connections with our space travel expert Dr. Joy and Astroclaus! Join us as they unravel mathematical ideas and concepts pertaining to space flight - in a shuttle or sleigh.

Contest runs December 6-12, 2000 Live Interactive webcast is Wednesday, December 13, 2000 10:00 a.m. PT Complete event details will be available December 1, 2000 when the Dr. Joy and Astroclaus pages go live from the North Pole. On Wednesday, December 6, 2000 a series of 10 questions ranging from elementary to high school skill level will be posted on the Astroclaus pages. Each question is tied to a mathematical standard. You may respond to these questions at any time over the course of the week by submitting your answers to astroclaus@quest.arc.nasa.gov  . Our team of astro-elves will record the correct answers and keep a list of these good boys and girls answers for Astroclaus' list.  Then on Wednesday, December 13, Astroclaus and Dr.Joy will meet all boys and girls online in an

interactive webcast to review the answers and announce students names from around the world who sent in correct answers. The concept of making connections will be used during the live webcast as new questions based on the original mathematical concepts are asked for more added interactive fun. Don't forget to join the contest in which students submit a descriptive paragraph describing the ideal Astroclaus sleigh.
