Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough,
if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows
us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not
that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often
hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat
sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to
ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the
sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new
spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into
cyber-aero-space for awhile.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via
Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments are always
welcome, as well.
Aero-Linx: The Beginner's Guide
The site was prepared at NASA Glenn by the Learning Technologies
Project (LTP) to provide background information on basic propulsion
for secondary math and science teachers. The pages were originally
prepared as teaching aids to support EngineSim, an interactive
educational computer program that allows students to design and
test jet engines on a personal computer. Other slides were prepared
to support LTP videoconferencing workshops (www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/CoE/Coemain.html)
for teachers and students.
