The Beginner's Guide to Aeronautics (BGA) and Beginner's Guide to Rockets (BGR) were created as Web-based "textbooks." The creation of these web sites is a research project to explore the use of the personal computer and the Internet to present educational materials to students, teachers, and lifelong learners in a more interactive way than a printed, bound textbook. Another method for reaching students, teachers and lifelong learners is the use of Distance Learning. Several Power Point presentations have been prepared for the Digital Learning Network, some using information from the BGA. Additional information is provided concerning space flight in support of the BGR. On this page, we provide a listing of the presentations.
