Welcome to SPOT
The Space Public Outreach Team (SPOT) provides FREE presentations about
current NASA missions to Montana schools, youth programs, and community
groups. The office at Montana State University in Bozeman sends presenters to schools and communities across the
This year there are two SPOT shows available: Mission to Mars
explores the steps necessary to land a rover successfully on the surface of Mars and reasons for visiting Mars. The Sun-Earth Connection teaches students
about the Sun and how it effects our planet. More information about
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.
SPOT isn't taking any more show requests at this time. Please check back with us in August 2013 for requesting a show.
