Eventually, each teaching module on the NASA Explorer Schools Virtual Campus will have an extensive set of digital playlist items for a teacher to use when presenting the module content. Included in the playlist, and already on the Virtual Campus, are excerpts from the on-demand e-Professional Development videos. Added recently are presentation files accompanied by a screen-by-screen script. The files are in PDF format and can be shown to students as a slide show. Presentations are currently available for the following:
• Black Hole Math
• Earth Climate Course
• Engineering Design Challenge: Lunar Plant Growth Chamber
• Engineering Design Challenge: Spacecraft Structures
• Engineering Design Challenge: Water Filtration
• Exploring Space Through Math: Lunar Rover
• Fingerprints of Life
• My NASA DATA
Coming very soon are presentations and scripts for the following:
• Rockets Educator Guide
• Math and Science @ Work
• MESSENGER: Staying Cool
Presentations for the remaining modules will be announced in future e-blasts and Teachers Corner posts as the presentations are added to the Virtual Campus. To access the presentation files, log into the Virtual Campus. Go to one of the modules listed above and open the Materials Needed component in the right column. Look for files called Presentation Slides and Presentation Script. Larger presentations are spread across several files to minimize your download times.
