NASA For Students

NASA's Education Program
"NASA’s journeys into air and space have deepened humankind’s understanding of the universe, advanced technology breakthroughs, enhanced air travel safety and security, and expanded the frontiers of scientific research. These accomplishments share a common genesis: education. As the United States begins the second century of flight, the Nation must maintain its commitment to excellence in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education to ensure that the next generation of Americans can accept the full measure of their roles and responsibilities in shaping the future. NASA will continue the Agency’s tradition of investing in the Nation’s education programs and supporting the country’s educators who play a key role in preparing, inspiring, exciting, encouraging, and nurturing the young minds of today who will be the workforce of tomorrow.

EarthKAM inspires children to explore the worldEarthKAM

"EarthKAM (Earth Knowledge Acquired by Middle school students) is a NASA educational outreach program enabling students, teachers and the public to learn about Earth from the unique perspective of space. During EarthKAM missions (periods the EarthKAM camera is operational), middle school students around the world request photos of specific locations on Earth. The entire collection of EarthKAM images is available in a searchable EarthKAM image archive. This image collection and accompanying learning guides and activities are extraordinary resources to engage students in Earth and space science, geography, social studies, mathematics, communications and art.

The project was initiated by Dr. Sally Ride (America’s first woman in space) in 1995 and called KidSat. The KidSat camera flew on three space shuttle flights (STS 76, 81 and 86) to test its feasibility. In 1998, the program was deemed successful and renamed to EarthKAM. The EarthKAM camera flew on two additional space shuttle flights (STS 89 and 99) before moving over to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2001 on Expedition 1. The EarthKAM camera has since been a permanent payload on board the ISS and supports approximately four missions annually." ... more

Science Magazine logoScience
"Founded in 1880 on $10,000 of seed money from the American inventor Thomas Edison, Science has grown to become the world's leading outlet for scientific news, commentary, and cutting-edge research, with the largest paid circulation of any peer-reviewed general-science journal. Through its print and online incarnations, Science reaches an estimated worldwide readership of more than one million. In content, too, the journal is truly international in scope; some 35 to 40 percent of the corresponding authors on its papers are based outside the United States. Its articles consistently rank among world's most cited research.

Science's leading position stems from many factors:
* the journal's strong tradition of editorial independence;
* its high standards of peer review and editorial quality (of the more than 12,000 top-notch scientific manuscripts that the journal sees each year, less than 8% are accepted for publication);
* its Board of Reviewing Editors, consisting of more than 100 of the world's top scientists;
* its strong connections with the scientific community, which ensures a stream of lively, up-to-date, and authoritative news and commentary in its pages;
* the dedication of its professional staff in the U.S., the U.K., and other countries, including 26 Ph.D. editors, a creative production and art group, and a team of science writers, reporters, and journalists second to none;
* the support of its publisher, AAAS, the world's largest general-science society.

Today, a century and a quarter after its founding, Science continues to publish the very best in scientific research, news, and opinion. Whether you're concerned with AIDS, SARS, genomic medicine, Mars, or global warming, or just want to keep abreast of where the scientific world is and where it's going, you will find something worthwhile in Science.Today, a century and a quarter after its founding, Science continues to publish the very best in scientific research, news, and opinion.

The Science Club fuels the wonder and joy of learning, through school assemblies, parent and teacher workshops, television, video, and print. The Science Club has also designed programs for museums, agencies, and educational organizations."

The Science Club Philosophy

"We started The Science Club in 1987 to help children and their caregivers understand the voluptuous and sensual character of learning. It had seemed to us that we spent entirely too much of our education on the accumulation of unusable and disjointed facts and not enough time on art and whimsy of the search. We felt our goal should not be data for datas sake but the skill of using data to solve problems, to spend our education learning how to think not what to think. We approached this mission with the only tools we had. Our own passion for learning and our sense of humor. We are still grateful for these tools as we are still learning and we still make so many mistakes that a sense of humor is sometimes all that stands between us and the funny farm. The credentials for the science club are many and extremely different from what one might expect from a mainstream educational consultant. While it is true that Kathy is a teacher with fifteen years experience and a masters degree in educational technology as well as a curriculum coordinator for a major school system, The Science Club also represents those who do not thrive in traditional school settings..." more
