NASA Science Activation
What is SMD’s Science Activation program? Science is best understood by doing, and NASA Science has a new team to help learners of all ages “do” science! 25 competitively-selected teams from across the Nation connect NASA science experts, real content, and experiences with community leaders to do science in ways that activate minds and promote understanding. This map shows the reach of the activities funded by the Science Activation efforts.
