We showcase RHESSI (Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager) EPO (Education and Public Outreach) resources developed at the University of California in Berkeley (UCB and the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), and STEREO IMPACT Instrument EPO. Both projects are supported by the SEGway program infrastructure at UCB. SEGway is a national consortium of science museums, research institutions, and educators who work together to present the latest space science research for students, educators, and the general public and is an on-line educational resource center, adapting space science research and information for the benefit of broad audiences using web-based learning technologies. The San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), a SEGway collaborator, has functioned as a test bed for newly developed on-line lessons, establishing valuable local relationships with teachers, students and administrators who provide input, feedback, and evaluation.
