NASA eClips LogoNASA eClips is excited to hear that students in grades 8-12 will have the opportunity to talk to Astronauts on the International Space Station later this week.

 

To support this educational event, we are highlighting over 30+ Realworld and Launchpad videos that encourage learning and exploration on the International Space Station. Check out our selection of grade appropriate NASA eClips videos today.

 

The downlink is part of a series with educational organizations in the U.S. and abroad to improve teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It is an integral component of NASA’s Teaching From Space education program.

In celebration of the NASA Kepler Mission and its latest discoveries the Launchpad: Kepler clip is our video of the week. Are you an educator? If so, be sure to view this video’s related resources.

 

Kepler is NASA’s first mission to look specifically for Earth-size planets in the habitable zones (areas where liquid water could exist) around stars like our sun. Kepler will spend 3-1/2 years surveying more than 100,000 stars in the Cygnus-Lyra region of our Milky Way galaxy. More than 300 exoplanets have been discovered previously, most of which are low-density gas giants such as Jupiter or Saturn in our own solar system.

 

For more information check out the Kepler Mission page.
