GENESIS: Exploring Data--A First Look
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

During this program, educators learned how to use data from NASA’s GENESIS mission. About 4.6 billion years ago, the solar nebula transformed into the present solar system. In order to chemically model the processes that drove that transformation, scientists would like to have a sample of the original nebula to use as a baseline from which they could track changes. The GENESIS sample-return mission was designed to give them just such a baseline composition.

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.
