each show is available on our Presentations page.
The interactive SPOT presentations utilize slides, videos, animations and an
inquisitive approach to relay the excitement of new discoveries in space
science. NASA research and careers here in Montana are highlighted in each
show. Presentations can be done in a classroom or assembly setting, as long
as a screen or blank wall and an electrical outlet are available. Each show
lasts approximately 45 minutes.
Participating teachers will receive lesson plans, activities, brochures and
other materials they can use in their classrooms.
