NASA Do-It-Yourself

Are you looking for a new approach to engage students in science,
technology, engineering and mathematics? NASA’s Do-It-Yourself Podcast
activity sets the stage for students to host a show that features
astronauts doing experiments on the International Space Station or NASA
experts explaining scientific concepts. NASA provides a set of audio and
video clips along with links to images and information about a
STEM-related topic. Students can choose as many items as they want to
include in a project and download them to their computer. Students can use
the information provided or conduct their own research to write a script
for an audio or video production.

NASA eCLips:

NASA eClips are short, relevant educational video segments. These videos
inspire and engage students, helping them see real world connections. New
video segments are produced weekly exploring current applications of
science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, topics. The
programs are produced for targeted audiences: K-5, 6-8, 9-12 and the
general public.

NASA eClips? offer unlimited flexibility in the classroom for timing,
sequencing and pacing instruction to meet the needs of students and
classroom instructors. Educational material for this program is selected
based on national curriculum standards identified by the National Council
of Teachers of Mathematics, or NCTM, the National Science Teachers
Association, or NSTA, and the International Society for Technology in
Education, or ISTE.
