The National Park Service, U.S Presidential Libraries, and Museums, the Internet2 community, and cultural and historic organizations nationwide are proud to offer the annual Presidential Primary Source Project (PPSP), a series of free, standards aligned, 45 minute interactive videoconferencing programs aimed at students in grades 6-12. The series will run from January - March 2016. Each program will also be live streamed and recorded for on demand viewing for free.


This year’s theme is "Culture, Society, and Presidential Decision-Making." Through the use of primary source documents and interactive videoconferencing, the 2017 program series will take students on a journey through our nation's history and allow them to view a President's key decisions through the life and times of their era.
