As part of the education outreach efforts at NASA-Goddard's HEASARC
(High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center), we have developed
two World Wide Web sites for astronomy and space science education. "StarChild"
is a site geared for ages 4-14, and the "High-Energy Astrophysics Learning Center"
focuses on ages 14-adult. In both sites, information is presented on a variety of
reading and comprehension levels. Interactive activities, movies, and animations
The sites have been developed with the participation of, and review by, teachers
of all grade levels. The sites are now also being distributed in a CD-ROM format.
Development of the sites and our future plans are discussed.
