Back to School!
NASA is helping teachers launch into the school year with Learning and Educational Activities and Resources from NASA Science (LEARN Science)!
James Webb Space Telescope STEM Toolkit
Webb will be a giant leap forward in our quest to understand the universe and its origins, and students can participate in the excitement too! This STEM Toolkit contains wonderful K-12 resources, activities, videos, lesson plans, and more.
Celebrating Webb’s First Images
Join in the excitement of Webb’s first full-color images with NASA and our mission partners. Watch the NASA broadcast unveiling the first images, find an upcoming Webb Space Telescope community event in your area, and more.
NASA Science Events and Activities
Let NASA bring the universe to your home! We’re inviting every student, educator, and lifelong learner to share in the excitement of scientific discovery and space exploration through unique opportunities from NASA’s Science Activation Program—a community-based approach to connect NASA science with learners of all ages.
Science Activation Reach Map
Science Activation reaches learners in all 50 states and more than 110 countries around the world. In 2020, we reached an estimated 22 million learners in the US. State by state totals and specific touchpoints are captured in this interactive map for 2019 and 2020.
To help connect NASA science with science learners, we have identified those science education standards that are aligned with each division in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD).
What is SMD’s Science Activation (SciAct) program? NASA Science has a new team to help learners of all ages “do” science! For the next four years, a cooperative network of thirty-three competitively-selected teams from across the Nation will work with NASA infrastructure teams to connect NASA science experts, real content, and experiences with community leaders to do science in ways that activate minds and promote deeper understanding of our world and beyond. The program is informed by a 2019 assessment from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.
