As NASA SMD approaches the five-year mid-point for the SciAct program, it is entering a period of transition and reflection that will lead to increased alignment with NASA’s 2020 Science Strategy (NASA, 2020). An important guide during this transition are the recommendations included in NASA's Science Activation Program Consensus Study Report by the National Academy of Sciences (NRC, 2020). Core to the conclusions in this report are recommendations that NASA would benefit from new SciAct teams that have the capacity to enhance and deepen cross-collaboration efforts, better support instructional design efforts, and better connect SciAct partners to learning theory and best practices in educational technologies (NAS, 2020). In addition to these portfolio changes, there are dramatic and ongoing shifts to the learning ecosystem as the Coronavirus pandemic has spurred adoption of remote and digital learning at all education levels (Nicola, et.al., 2020; Viner, et.al., 2020). This dynamic educational landscape will impact NASA’s engagement and education strategy for years to come.
