What is a NASA Educator Resource Center? How Can We Help Educators?
NASA Education - Communication Strategy (PDF)
As NASA explores frontiers of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), it seeks to assist teachers and students to explore them as well. NASA also encourages youth to explore STEM careers. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Through its dissemination network, NASA provides educational materials, information, services, and other resources to our nation's classrooms. NASA Educator Resource Centers and NASA Regional Educator Resource Centers are part of this network that serve both formal educators (public school teachers) and informal educators (homeschool parents, etc.) for the state in which they reside.
If you have questions about NASA or its mission; need NASA related classroom materials such as lesson plans, pictures, videos, computer software; help with workshops, etc., then please contact the center for your region. Your local NASA Educator Resource Center can best help you with educational needs specific to your state's standards and objectives. A complete list of addresses and contacts can be found at the NASA website. You'll also want to visit NASA's main website.
Whenever NASA releases new educational materials to the public, you can learn of and access these materials easily! All you need do is join the EXPRESS mailing list for educators to receive announcements of new NASA education publications, Central Operation of Resources for Educators (CORE) multimedia materials, and other opportunities for educators.
