June 18, 2008
The CyArk Education Program has developed a variety of educational resources for educators, parents, students, and the general public. Our education pages currently feature information about the CyArk Education Program and teacher advisory committee, lesson plans, and a news page. You can reach the CyArk Education pages by clicking "Education" on the top navigation bar of any page. You will be brought directly to the our educational pages.

At the core of the CyArk Education website are lesson plans created for educators who want to use CyArk's media with students in a fun and exciting activity. Interdisciplinary K-12 lesson plans are available with a free CyArk Professional Account. These lesson plans feature hands-on and computer based activities aligned to California State Standards. Everything needed to teach a lesson is available for download in a compressed folder. Teacher background, activity preparation information, slideshows, and student sheets are all included.

Our education news page features articles that highlight new ideas for using 3-D data and other media from CyArk in the classroom. Updates also feature upcoming CyArk sponsored outreach presentations and professional development days for educators. We plan to continue adding materials to the CyArk Education pages, so be sure to check back often!

If you have any comments, suggestions or specific features you would like to see from the CyArk Education Program, please feel free to contact us! We also welcome educators to join our advisory committee. Emails should be directed to Nicole Medina, CyArk Education Program Developer at email address

We look forward to hearing from you.
