Project launches Sept. 1
The NASA Explorer Schools project is NASA’s classroom-based gateway for middle school (grades 4-8) and high school (grades 9-12) classrooms. NES provides free teaching and learning resources that promote student engagement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM. The project provides opportunities for teachers and students to participate in NASA’s mission of research and discovers through inquiry-based experiences directly related to the work of NASA scientists and engineers.
At the end of the year, NES will recognize its best teachers and schools with NASA experiences such as field center training, research opportunities and flights aboard a reduced-gravity aircraft.
