Mary Garrett, Educator/Ambassador, NASA EPO

  • "More Fun with Fermi and the Internet"
    Strand:Using Technology Tools or Applications
    The Fermi observatory was launched on June 11, 2008, to study high-energy objects producing gamma rays in space. Active galaxies−with their black holes and blasting jets−are among the interesting objects being studied. Come see how your students can catch the excitement of space exploration using the Internet.
  •  This is the index to all the NASA presentations I do including the one for MACUL.  I believe people attending my presentation would not only be able to find the notes for the presentation, but would also find the notes for other NASA presentations useful since they all have links to free materials for classroom use from NASA EPO.
