NASA... On the Cutting Edge
A Series of Educational Live Programs
NASA... On the Cutting Edge is a series of exciting, interactive educational
live shows brought to you by the NASA Teaching from Space Program at Oklahoma
State University, in cooperation with OSU's Educational Television Services.
These exciting programs take students and educators on electronic field
trips to laboratories, classrooms, NASA Centers, and remote sites across
the country to experience science, mathematics, geography, and technology
in real-world settings. NASA's cutting-edge research, unique facilities
and diverse workforce provide an ideal backdrop for these experiences.
Viewers will be able to see how the skills they are learning in school
- including teamwork, cooperation, and commitment to excellence - are
used by scientists, engineers, and other professionals every day.

Archive of Program 1: Oceans in Motion!
Ocean circulation - the movement of water carrying heat and matter - not
only affects life in the oceans but also weather and climate around the
world. Because the oceans are so expansive, covering two-thirds of Earth,
the only way to study them on a broad scale is by observing them from
space. NASA and its partners use this unique vantage point to measure
ocean height, winds, and temperature. Come learn about these ocean features,
how ocean circulation works, and the important role it plays in our lives.
Archive of Program 2: The Color of Oceans
How blue is the deep, blue sea? Oceans are actually many shades of blue,
green and even red. This spectrum of color tells us a lot about the health
of our oceans, which affects life on Earth. NASA's ocean-color observations
from space give us the big picture of oceans and help to understand the
role oceans play in global change. Discover the excitement and importance
of viewing from high above Earth this ever-changing portrait of ocean
productivity, ecosystems, and human impacts.
