You can't load Office to create new documents; instead, you would use Pages (Word equivalent), Numbers (Excel-like), and Keynote (like PowerPoint).
However, you CAN open, view and project Office documents you created on your computer on and through your iPad. You need a) a projection app and b) an adapter to project content onto your TV or through a projector to a screen. One app that let's you do this is, appropriately, called Projector. Another is called Expedition. (You could also try Web-to-VGA, but I think it's just for projecting webpages... must go back and double-check...)
Load the app, then load the file, plug in the iPad-to-VGA or iPad-to-component adapter, plug in to your TV or projector, open your document in the projection app of your choice (yes, you can open Office documents), and away you go.
Make sure you do some practice runs the first time.
Hope this helps!

There are no apps for word, excel or powerpoint. Use keynote, numbers and pages. PPT files can be opened In keynote and word docs can open in pages. In presentation mode they will display.

Have a look at SlideShark - specifically made for PowerPoint files - even has the presenter view so you can use the timers and see your notes while the presentation is output in full screen
