The NASA funded Yohkoh Public Outreach Project (YPOP) began in 1995 with the goal of providing public access to high quality Yohkoh SXT data via the World Wide Web. The project utilizes the intrinsic excitement of the SXT data, and in particular the SXT movies, to develop science learning tools and classroom activities. The WWW site at URL: uses a movie theater theme to highlight available Yohkoh movies in a format that is entertaining and inviting to non-scientists and well received by scientists. We will discuss the wide range of people YPOP has reached over the past six years, as well as lessons learned during the development of the project.
