A TEACHER'S GUIDE TO PLASMA SCIENCE RESOURCES

Introduction | Basic Information | Plasmas in Nature | 
Man-Made Plasmas | Resources for Students | 
Resources for Teachers | Plasma Outreach Near You 

INTRODUCTION

There is a great deal of information on the web about plasmas -- so much information and at so many different levels that it is difficult for a teacher who needs clear, concise information to sort through it all. This website, designed by teachers for teachers, represents a "best of the web."

Teachers wishing to incorporate Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) (http://www.nextgenscience.org/) will find plasma science links applicable to many topics. Each site is evaluated against a CPS rubric (pdf/ | doc) that includes significant adherence to NGSS.
