NASA ROLLS OUT NEW 'KIDS CLUB'
NASA has created a new online 'Kids'Club' serving up games, activities and plenty of action for future explorers. NASA will rollout the Web site Thursday, April 6, from 8 to 9 a.m. PDT in the Redondo Room, Hilton Anaheim Hotel, 777 Convention Way, Anaheim, Calif. The event is part of the National Science Teachers Association national conference, and it is open to the media.
The new site will feature animated, colorful, entertaining and educational activities for children in kindergarten through fourth grade. Interactive games include exploring and learning about space, building and launching rockets, exploring Mars, keeping airplanes on schedule and helping a comet travel through the solar system.
The Kids' Club site serves a dual purpose. Children can play the games at home for their pure entertainment value. Educators can use the activities as a fun way to reach students in the classroom, the library, during after school programs or anywhere children and computers are together.
NASA's education programs motivate and engage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The programs support activities in the nation's schools and distribute information through instructional and outreach products. For information about other NASA education programs on the Web, visit:
