I am do totally pumped for this. I got to write lesson plans for the project. Very cool stuff!
 
Take a field trip to outer space with INTERSTELLAR lesson plans 

We worked with Google Certified Teachers to create lesson plans for middle and high school classrooms around INTERSTELLAR, a new movie from Christopher Nolan that explores topics from climate change to space travel to the theory of relativity. 

Schools can purchase group tickets now and be among the first to see the film. When the movie opens on November 5 a wide range of lesson plans will be available for teachers to download. 

Read an interview with Christopher Nolan and learn more on the Google for Education blog. goo.gl/CmuFbO
