[suzanne kinnison gsfc nasa gov: Cosmology Survey]

This is about cosmology rather than particle physics, but it might be
of interest to teachers.  Suzanne Kinnison is our regional education
representative from NASA and has a mailing list of people interested
in NASA educational resources.

The following is an opportunity for Middle School, Junior High 
School, and High School Educators and Professional Development 
Providers to participate in the creation of a new educational 
resource.  Please feel free to send it along to teachers who may find 
it of interest.


>Dear Junior or High School Science Educator, or Professional 
>Development Provider,
>The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics together with NASA 
>would like a few minutes of your time to help in developing an 
>exciting new resource for teachers.
>We are working to produce a DVD package for teaching about the Big 
>Bang model for the origin and evolution of the universe - a key 
>concept in the Earth and Space Science Content Standards.
>We plan to include on the DVD resources such as:  effective 
>inquiry-based classroom materials and assessments; scenes of 
>teachers using these materials with their students; interviews with 
>students about their ideas regarding the structure and evolution of 
>the universe; interviews with teachers about their challenges and 
>successes in teaching this topic; explanations of the science of Big 
>Bang cosmology, including graphic visualizations; and interviews 
>with scientists.
>To make this DVD as useful as possible, we need some information 
>from teachers of grades 8-12 earth science, physical science, 
>astronomy and physics courses, whether or not you currently teach 
>about the Big Bang.
>The survey is available online at http://www.cosmicquestions.org/survey
>It will take around ten minutes to complete.  After filling out the 
>survey, you'll have a chance to put yourself on a distribution list 
>to receive a copy of the DVD when it is published in 2005.
>With thanks for your interest and assistance,
>SAO-NASA Structure & Evolution of the Universe Education Forum.
