WASHINGTON, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Teachers and students can learn the science behind scoring a touchdown, throwing a slam-dunk or a hitting a homerun with a new distance-learning program called NASA STEM Mania.

NASA's Distance Learning Network (DLN) will present the two-week series Monday, Feb. 24, through Monday, March 10, and will give educators and students from kindergarten through 12th grade the opportunity to learn how NASA and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) play a role in sports.

NASA STEM Mania sessions will be held each Monday through Thursday and will allow students and educators the ability to interact virtually with NASA subject matter experts on a variety of topics such as the science of race car driving, using STEM to succeed in football, and using basketball as an engineering example in the classroom. Sample highlights from the various sessions include: sports clips from the International Space Station; a special astronaut appearance; and, how to become an Orion virtual crew member.

Student sessions will be presented at 12-1 p.m. EST and sessions for educators will be presented at 4-5 p.m. EST.

The DLN is an interactive videoconferencing network that allows the next generation of explorers to connect with NASA scientists, engineers and researchers without leaving the classroom. The distance-learning events are designed to educate through demonstrations and live interactions with NASA experts across the country.

To learn more about each session, register for a session or watch the session live via NASA's DLiNfo Channel, please visit:
