NESPUT, The National Education Simulations Project Using Telecommunications, is actually an international activity in which real-life activities are simulated via telecommunications for educational purposes. Schools, educators, and others may join or even initiate simulations for purposes of education. Adult "scriptors" moderate and guide the activities of students as they work on a simulated activity which typically involves exchanges between some or many educational institutions. Some of the activity related to a given situation can be done in the classroom, much is actually done on-line. Typically, participants are involved with schools, but this is not always a requirement. Simulations have included space shuttle launches (in which schools worldwide acted as mission control, alternate landing sites, solar flare observatories, the Russian MIR space station, and other launch related sites), interstellar space travel in which students respond to emergencies and develop problem solving techniques while learning about space travel, a "tele-olympics," in which results were exchanged via telecommunications, and other activities. NESPUT is coordinated by Robert E. Morgan (email@example.com) of University School in Shaker Heights, Ohio and Judson Elliot (firstname.lastname@example.org) of Willoughby (Ohio) Middle School.
