Abstract: Using spherical displays like the Magic Planet and Science on a Sphere, this project aims to create interactive and engaging multimedia presentations for schools and the general public. These innovative multimedia devices offer a unique and stimulating way to display NASA data sets to a broad audience. Presentations will highlight data of the Moon from Clementine, Lunar Orbiter, Lunar Prospector, and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission as well as data from the MESSENGER mission to Mercury. A key aspect of the project is the incorporation of clickers into the presentation in order to encourage audience participation and to promote interest.
