Teaching Experience

The Immersion Presents materials do not require program leaders to have a science background or teaching experience. However, it is advised that educators have at least basic familiarity with computers, especially if they will be taking advantage of the associated multimedia tools and online community.

Planning and Preparation

The developers have endeavored to minimize prep work on the part of the facilitator. However, the preparation for individual activities varies, and in some cases, there is set-up required. Before initiating an activity, the program leader should read through the set-up notes and implementation suggestions.

Technology

  • Software: Digital media player
  • Computers: Multimedia computer station desirable, with speakers and high band-width Internet access

Costs

The extensive Web site content and tools, including the collection of videos, mission logs, maps, community message boards, and sample activities, are all available for free—no registration is required. The full Adventure Series curricula can be purchased separately. Contact the developer for pricing and information on placing an order.
