Eyes on the Solar System

"Eyes on the Solar System" is a 3-D interactive environment full of real NASA mission data. Explore the cosmos from your computer. Hop on an asteroid. Fly with NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft. See the entire solar system moving in real time. It's up to you. You control space and time. Ride along with Juno on its long journey to Jupiter where it will try to understand the origin and evolution of Jupiter and our solar system. With its suite of science instruments, Juno will investigate the existence of a solid planetary core, map Jupiter’s intense magnetic field, measure the amount of water and ammonia in the deep atmosphere, and observe the planet’s auroras.

"The Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) Progam is designed to support the professional development of newly-credentialed, beginning teachers. My eCoach has allowed our new teachers and their support providers a one-stop-shop for accessing the necessary tools for becoming successful teachers. Most new teachers are "tech" savvy and love being able to collaborate, communicate and have access to their BTSA materials electronically. My eCoach is the perfect fit for our program."
