NASA’s education program strives to “inspire and motivate students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics” by supporting education in the Nation’s schools and to “engage the public in shaping and sharing the experience of exploration and discovery” by supporting informal education and public outreach efforts.
Nasa for students
NASA will continue the Agency’s tradition of investing in the Nation’s education programs and supporting the country’s educators who play a key role in preparing, inspiring, exciting, encouraging, and nurturing the young minds of today who will be the workforce of tomorrow.
NASA Kids’ Club
For educators and students.
NASA for Educators
A-Z List of NASA Educational Publications
This list provides links to descriptions of NASA education print publications. You may download the publication from the description page.
NASA eClips™ are short, relevant educational video segments. These videos inspire and engage students, helping them see real world connections.
Exploring Space Through Math
Mathematics is an essential component of contemporary science and engineering. Exploring Space Through Math will help students in grades 7-12 develop a deeper understanding of key mathematical concepts, and learn how to apply those concepts in the context of space exploration. This project can be a valuable supplemental component to the Mathematics curriculum as it exposes students to the limitless options in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM fields.
Global Climate Change
NASA’s Climate Kids website brings the exciting science of climate change and sustainability to life, providing clear explanations for the big questions in climate science Targeting upper-elementary-aged children, the site includes interactive games, hands-on activities, and engaging articles that make climate science accessible and fun. With a special section for educators, Climate Kids is great for parents and teachers as well.
Climate Resource Center
NASA’s Global Climate Change website hosts an extensive collection of global warming resources for media, educators, weathercasters and public speakers. Browse by topic and by media type, including videos, social media shareables, infographics, quizzes and interactives.
NASA’s Earth Now
NASA’s Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites, including surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor as well as gravity and sea level variations. Data sets are visually described using “false color” maps. Color-coded legends are provided to indicate relative strength or weakness of an environmental condition. The resulting 3D model of the Earth may be rotated by a single finger stroke, and may also be zoomed in or out by pinching 2 fingers. It was developed by the Earth Science Communications and Visualization Technology Applications and Development Teams at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with support from NASA Headquarters.
Science Mission Directorate
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) and the nation’s science community use space observatories to conduct scientific studies of the Earth from space to visit and return samples from other bodies in the solar system, and to peer out into our Galaxy and beyond.
NASA Wavelength is your pathway into a digital collection of Earth and space science resources for educators of all levels – from elementary to college, to out-of-school programs.
NASA Centers and Facilities
NASA Ames Research Center
NASA Ames Research Center, one of ten NASA field centers, is located in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley. For more than 76 years, Ames has led NASA in conducting world-class research and development in aeronautics, exploration technology and science aligned with the center’s core capabilities.
Sector 33 App
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an Air Traffic Controller? Imagine it’s a stormy Friday in Northern California as the evening rush of air traffic fast approaches the San Francisco Bay Area from the East. All flights going to San Francisco airport pass through “Sector 33” – your sector of airspace. As the lead air traffic controller, your job is to guide the planes safely through Sector 33 as quickly as possible. To do this, you must choose the most efficient route and make strategic speed changes. Can you handle Sector 33?
SciJinks is all about weather! Short for Science Hijinks, we are a joint NOAA and NASA educational website that puts fun and adventure into learning about weather, satellite meteorology, and Earth science. We are geared toward middle- and high-school aged kids and their educators.
The Space Place
The Space Place was started in February 1998 as an education and public outreach project of NASA’s New Millennium Program, which continues to be its primary supporter. Its target audience is elementary-school-age kids. We wanted to reach this young audience with the message that science and technology and learning about space are fun and within their grasp. We designed it with a kid-friendly look and feel. It is modular, so visitors can pick and choose different standalone projects or activities that interest them at the moment.
Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
Welcome to the Education Office at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In case you are not familiar with JPL, we are a federally funded research center, staffed and managed by the California Institute of Technology. Most of our work is in support of NASA’s robotic exploration of the solar system and universe.
OpsLab JPL in YouTube
The Operations Lab creates the software that is used to command all JPL spacecraft (like Curiosity rover), ranging from desktop to AR and VR systems. The Human Interfaces (HI) group researches, designs, prototypes and develops the ways users interact with these systems.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Marhall Space Flight Center
NASA’s Discovery Program gives scientists the opportunity to dig deep into their imaginations and find innovative ways to unlock the mysteries of the solar system. When it began in 1992, this program represented a breakthrough in the way NASA explores space. For the first time, scientists and engineers were called on to assemble teams and design exciting, focused planetary science investigations that would deepen the knowledge about our solar system.
