What are citizen scientists? Why is their work so important to NASA? Join Dr. Michelle Thaller as she explains how the general public, using scientific protocols, careful observations and accurate measurements, can help NASA make exciting new discoveries. Find out how you can be a citizen scientist today.
Elementary students (grades K-5) learn more about Our World through the power of video segments. Through NASAs lens, the segments compare the natural world with the designed world, illustrating the ways to make the most of this world while propelling us into new worlds. This program is designed to supplement existing elementary learning objectives not only in STEM, but also in reading, writing, and visual and performing arts.
Middle school students (grades 6-8) explore mathematics in action through Real World. These video segments connect classroom mathematics to 21st-century careers and innovations. Learning experiences are aligned with middle school mathematics standards of learning, and are designed for students to develop an appreciation for mathematics through real-world problem solving.
High school students ignite their interest in science and engineering through NASA innovations in Launchpad. Video segments support project-based and problem-based learning experiences in science, mathematics, and career and technical education classrooms.
