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.
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.
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.

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 email@example.com
. 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
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
