Videos in English and Spanish include Introduction to Space Exploration, The Hubble Telescope, Life on Mars, Rockets, and The Space Shuttle. Create in the Multimedia Studio complete with slides, text and cool sound effects students use to create their own multimedia presentation. You can also supplement your lessons with online help, encyclopedia articles, activities, and Lesson Launcher ready-made slide shows to introduce your next science topic. Includes a teacher’s guide.
