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 state.

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. Life in the Universe explores the Solar System through the eyes of an astronaut. Learn about the search for new life and how Montana scientists are contributing to this search. 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.
