All web seminar participants use online tools that allow them to mark-up presenter's slides or share desktop applications in addition to engaging in chat with others online and answering poll questions

In this web seminar, educators were introduced to the Modeling Hot and Cold Planets educator guide. They found out how to implement a lesson that allows students to design an experiment to determine the factors having the greatest influence on the temperature of a planet and to test their hypotheses using physical and computer models.

This web seminar is part of a series of electronic professional development experiences sponsored by the NASA Explorer Schools (NES) project. NES is NASA's classroom-based gateway for middle school (grades 4-8) and high school (grades 9-12) classrooms providing authentic learning experiences inspired by NASA's unique missions. NES provides free teaching and learning resources that promote student engagement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and opportunities for teachers and students to participate in NASA's mission of research and discovery through inquiry-based experiences directly related to the work of NASA scientists and engineers.
