September 2017 - September 2018: Although on different crews, astronauts Joe Acaba and Ricky Arnold - both former teachers - will work aboard the International Space Station. K-16 students and educators can do NASA STEM activities related to the station and its role in NASA’s journey to Mars. https://www.nasa.gov/education/onstation/
Expeditions are journeys made by people who share a definite purpose and specific experiences. To make their expeditions successful, NASA works with astronaut crews on skills that prepare them to live and work together during space missions. Some of these same skills are useful in everyday life here on Earth. 4-H is a positive youth development program that prepares youth for life and work. Together, NASA and 4-H are creating the following series of activities that will be available in January 2017. These activities are designed to take you through various educational expeditions that will help you learn and practice skills that you can apply in almost every aspect of life.
Join NASA and 4-H to learn more about Cultural Competency and other Expeditionary Skills that you can apply in almost every aspect of life at www.nasa.gov/education/4H.
Engineering design challenges are an integral part of educational content where students have the opportunity to work on real world challenges in a collaborative, team-based environment, applying the lessons learned to the technical problems of the workplace. This challenge will connect students in their classrooms with the unique challenges faced by NASA scientists and engineers as they design the next generation of space vehicles, habitats and technology. Students and educators will have the opportunity to interact with NASA experts and discuss their solutions to the challenge problem and their work at NASA.

Give your students access to some of NASA's most fascinating people and a front-row seat to NASA's missions, research and facilities with NASA Now classroom videos. These NASA Now classroom videos are short programs designed to show your students what a scientist, engineer or technician looks like; what they sound like; and what kind of work they do. NASA Now classroom videos show real people putting the science, technology, engineering and mathematics they learned in school to work for NASA missions, research and careers.
