The Center for Educational Resources (CERES) Project, a NASA-funded outreach effort at Montana State University, has begun implementing the astronomy concepts prescribed in the NRC's National Science Education Standards (NSES) by using NASA's existing Internet resources. A team of classroom teachers, university professors, and NASA re-search scientists developed 20 innovative web-based K-12 classroom lessons that emphasize inquiry-based instructional strategies. In addition, CERES has created two graduate-lev-el Internet-based distance learning courses for K-12 teachers, to help them learn the astronomy concepts in the NSES and gain experience with the project's NSES-based instructional materials. Together, the classroom materials and the support-ing Internet-based courses for teachers provide substantial support for schools implementing the NSES and are avail-able online at URL: http://btc.montana.edu/ceres.
