Educational resources such as interactive classroom lesson modules are being offered on the World Wide Web by the Office of Public Outreach (OPO) at the Space Telescope Science Institute. The content springs from scientific results and technological developments associated with the Hubble Space Telescope Mission. We will describe the Summer Workshop Thinktank that OPO sponsored, "Launch into Learning" in which teachers teamed with Institute staff to specify the themes addresed in the on-line resources. We will discuss the methodology used, our success and lessons learned and give examples of the lessons released on the WWW.
