NASA's Videos for Teachers

I could spend days telling you about all the amazing video clips available on the NASA site. They have several places you can visit for videos. Just about any topic you can imagine.


NASA eClips™: Get it? ;-)
"Short relevant educational video segments. These videos inspire and engage students, helping them see real world connections. New video segments are produced weekly exploring current applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, topics. The programs are produced for targeted audiences: K-5, 6-8, 9-12 and the general public."

NASA's Video Gallery:
Lots of videos on Hubble and what Hubble has seen in the Universe. Hover your mouse over the photo introducing a certain video and Add to your Playlist! A feature for the teacher who needs to find what they want to use quickly.

NASA TV: online or at YouTube:
Several channels with a multitude of topics.

NASA Interactive Features:
Then there is the incredible interactive site! Great fun for you and your students! Be sure to check this area out! Topics such as:
  1. Spacewalk Simulations
