Using Authentic NASA Data in the Classroom
One of the best things about NASA is that YOU own the data. As a federal agency, all NASA sponsored scientific data is made publicly available on the Internet. The trick is knowing where to find it and how to use it. In this session, we will look at some of the NASA online data nodes, the types and formats of data available, where to find free software that can read the data, and how to use this data to meet national science, math, and technology standards in your classroom. You'll also learn about NASA programs that allow you and your students to become actual scientists to collect and analyze your own data.

Finding Scientific Research Opportunities for You and Your Students
Good science teachers know that activities are more meaningful if they are inquiry-based, using real data acquired by the students themselves. The challenge is finding authentic research opportunities and projects. We will share the successes we've had and some of the programs available to teachers and/or students to do real, open-ended research using authentic data from NASA and elsewhere. We'll also talk about alternative research projects, such as podcasts, vodcasts, internships, job shadowing, and research on the history of science.
