The abundance of information that needs to be disseminated to students about events in space exploration and the theories and technology utilized may be overwhelming to the beginning teacher or lecturer. The utilization of a presentation package with computer and projection system can make it easier and more organized even for the novice. A presentation package, though there are many to consider, has basic features of interest. The fact that they are organized to be nothing more than electronic slide shows makes them attractive by providing a comfort zone that is familiar. Special effects may range from the manner in which the frame changes to the events that occur as the electronic slide is presented. This article provides an overview of the various major packages used in the classroom and the features that are available. Relative price, ease of use, and formats are explored. Next generation capability is discussed.
