the Solar System (3rd through 9th grades):
Use the science instruments from the Hubble Space Telescope to explore
our solar system. New and exciting images are constantly included to
guide students through the solar system's latest discoveries. This
core curriculum topic is enhanced with space science math exercises.
the Sun (6th through 12th grades):
Exploring the Sun uses images from NASA, NOAA, and NSO to explore our
Sun with pictures. It uses simple instructions (switches and buttons)
to guide students through Basic Sun information, two science
experiments and a fun multiple choice test. The information presented
is very basic, but made much more interesting by actual photo images
of the Sun.
the Universe (6th through 12th grades):
This program is a reading comprehension and math lesson from space
using images from the Hubble Space Telescope , ground photos and other
NASA probes to explain the universe with pictures. It also uses
extremely simple instructions (switches and buttons) to guide students
through the solar system, stars, galaxies and universe.
Space Telescope (HST) First Servicing Mission (Technical Reference):
This program uses images from the Hubble Space Telescope Repair
Mission to visually help describe the servicing mission. This software
package is meant to be a technical reference on the HST, for reference
material. The software uses extremely simple instructions (switches
and buttons) to guide students through five topic sections on the HST
Servicing Mission. The information is for reference and topics
include: astronauts, Hubble Space Telescope, Mission Preparations,
Mission Outline, and Extra-Vehicular Activities.
Weather (3rd through 9th grades):
Increase your meteorlogical and geoscience vocabulary. This program is
an interactive software program that teaches students to think about
weather in more global terms. The Earth's energy balance that is
controlled by the sun's energy, and its effect on the Earth system.
This program also ties in several weather related math exercises.
the Earth (3rd through 9th grades):
This program uses space images, vocabulary words and geography trivia
to teach students about our Earth. The software provides insight into
4 vocabulary subjects; land, water, atmosphere and space. In addition,
students can learn about the continents, oceans, chart Antarctic sea
ice growth, track a hurricane and see the Sahara's desert growth over
a decade. The software is easy to use and understand, and exposes
younger children to new concepts and terms. The other Jackson and Tull
software programs are more complicated, but are built around the easy
to use concept, with up to date science information. This software is
distributed freely by Jackson and Tull, with the permission of
National Instruments, Aladdin Systems, ARJ, and NASA. The software can
be distributed freely if used for educational purposes, and cannot be
sold or altered.
Geology Clip Art Ten
full page line drawings that will be useful in the creation of science
study guides, worksheets, homework and tests. This package includes:
Earth's Interior, Watershed Areas of the USA, Types of Faults,
Volcanic Structures, Landscapes of the USA, Rivers of the USA, Geology
Puzzles, Folding and Faulting and Ocean Currents.
Review This review includes questions, pictures and
graphs which help a high school student in biology. This review was
written for the New York State Regents Exam in Biology, however, it is
useful for any student interested in biology. It's also useful for
those students taking an introduction course in biology in college.

the skies with this accessible and easy-to-use 32-bit planetarium.
Adastra's varied and powerful functions are a significant subset of
the acclaimed astronomy shareware package Stella 2000, offering highly
realistic views of the night sky from any place on Earth or point in
time. Adastra presents an intuitive toolbar-driven interface promoting
flexible manipulation of its real-time sky display, with efficient
center, zoom, unzoom, directional and panning functions. A single
mouse click will bring a comprehensive report on any object visible in
the sky at the moment of observation. Adastra will smoothly animate
solar system objects in two modes against a stellar backdrop, create
printable finder charts, search for constellations, DSOs, stars, and
objects within the Solar System, in either point-source, spotlight, or
the new photoplate display styles.
is the fastest professional astronomy planetarium & star mapping
program today. It illustrates star positions of any instance of the
day observed from any geographic locations on the Earth. The star
positions can be viewed and presented as images of semispherical whole
sky or any of the user defined sub-areas. These images can be zoomed
at different scales, rotated, screen-captured and printed. Note: A
number of plugin examples for StarCalc, which extened it's
capabilities available from home page.
