NASA AND SCETV BRING TV SERIES INTO CLASSROOMS
NASA and South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV) are joining forces to video-stream three educational TV series to classrooms in South Carolina and across the country.
Developed by NASA Langleys Office of Education, the shows - "NASA Science Files," and "NASA CONNECT" - enhance and enrich the learning of mathematics, science, and technology for students from grades three through 12. Almost 18,000 South Carolina educators, representing about one-half million South Carolina students, are registered users of these programs.
The third show -- "NASA's Destination Tomorrow" is designed for educators, parents and life-long learners. These NASA award-winning programs have never before been available on the Web.
Using SCETV facilities, the streaming video will be made accessible nationwide to schools through SCETVs K-12 educational portal at http://www.knowitall.org.
"NASA Science Files" is a research and standards-based, Emmy® Award-winning series of 60-minute programs for students grades 3-5. Shows are designed to introduce students to NASA and, through the use of science, mathematics and technology, motivate them to become critical thinkers and active problem solvers.
"NASA CONNECT" is a research and standards-based, Emmy® Award-winning series of mathematics-focused programs for students in grades 6-8. The series includes a broadcast designed to establish a connection between concepts taught in the classroom and those used by NASA researchers.
"NASAs Destination Tomorrow" is a series of 30-minute television programs that focuses on NASA research, past, present and future. Designed for educators, parents and life-long learners, each program in this Emmy® Award-winning series follows a magazine-style format with segments running from 3-8 minutes.
