NASA and South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV)
are joining forces to video-stream three educational TV
series to classrooms in South Carolina and across the
country.

Developed by NASA’s Langley Office of Education, the shows,
“NASA Science Files,” and “NASA CONNECT,” enhance and enrich
the learning of mathematics, science, and technology for
students from grades three through 12. Approximately 18,000
South Carolina educators, representing about one-half
million students, are registered users of the programs.

The third show, “NASA’s Destination Tomorrow,” is designed
for educators, parents and life-long learners. The NASA
award-winning programs were previously unavailable on the
Internet. Using SCETV facilities, the streaming video will
be made accessible nationwide to schools through SCETV’s K-
12 educational portal.

“NASA Science Files” is a research and standards-based, Emmy
Award-winning series of 60-minute programs for students
grades three through five. Shows are designed to introduce
students to NASA and, through the use of science,
mathematics and technology, motivate them to become critical
thinkers and active problem solvers.

“NASA CONNECT” is a research and standards-based, Emmy
Award-winning series of mathematics-focused programs for
students in grades six through eight. The series includes a
broadcast designed to establish a connection between
concepts taught in the classroom and those used by NASA
researchers.

“NASA’s Destination Tomorrow” is a series of 30-minute
television programs focusing on NASA research, past, present
and future. Designed for educators, parents and life-long
learners, each program in this Emmy Award-winning series
follows a magazine-style format.
