Education & Public Outreach
SMD primarily supports EPO through:
- Projects embedded in its missions
- Through other periodic open solicitations
- Education and outreach supplements to research awards
Each year SMD supports hundreds of programs, activities, events, and resources. These include award-winning educational web sites, major exhibitions in museums and science centers, partnerships with minority universities, research projects that allow students and teachers to participate in NASA missions, live webcasts, and public television broadcasts on major space science research areas. You can see the results of these efforts by visiting the For Educators, For Kids, and For Citizen Scientists areas.
