The Khan Academy is revolutionizing the way students learn with free online educational materials available to learners worldwide. NASA and Khan Academy recently debuted a series of tutorials to increase student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM.

The Khan Academy website now provides a self-pacing guided learning experience with over 100,000 practice exercises and 5,000 instructional videos covering everything from basic arithmetic to college level science and economics.
It’s the most-used library of educational lessons on the web, with over 10 million unique students per month, over 300 million lessons delivered, and over a billion exercises completed. Over 200,000 educators around the world are also using Khan Academy to help build student mastery of topics and to free up class time for dynamic project based learning.
