Science Activation

What is SMD’s Science Activation program? 25 competitively-selected awardees across the Nation that leverage NASA infrastructure and unique NASA science experts and content to engage more effectively and efficiently with learners of all ages in the learning environment. Objectives include: Enable STEM Education, Improve U.S. Scientific Literacy, Advance National Educational Goals, and Leverage Efforts Through Partnerships. Baselined in November 2016, this collaborative model enables over 200 partnerships through a network of science and community-based institutions using a “multiplier effect” across the U.S. to achieve Objectives. Program includes a number of digital learning approaches maximizing SMD’s unique capabilities. Each of the 25 cooperative agreements use independent evaluators to validate performance. National Academies inform and assess overall Science Activation efforts. View the interactive Reach Map of Science Activation Activities
