Summary
  • ScienceVision, a videodisc by the Interactive Media Science Project at Florida State University, has impressed educators nationwide with its unusual and successful approach to science education at the middle-school level. The program lets students take the role of a reporter working for a TV news show and investigating stories such as ecological disasters and the potential of satellite exploration. Using computer simulation, the reporter can determine the ideal locations for a lunar station and its Earth-bound counterpart based on orbital speeds, gravity and distances. The programs help bring science to life but also build social, human and economic values as well as decision-making and critical thinking skills. The disc, which was developed through funding from the National Science Foundation, demonstrates what multimedia at its best can deliver in the classroom.
