NASA STEM Engagement

Merritt Island, Florida

NASA’s journeys have propelled technological breakthroughs, pushed the frontiers of scientific research, and expanded our understanding of the universe. These accomplishments, and those to come, share a common genesis: education in science, technology, engineering, and math.

In NASA STEM Engagement, we deliver tools for young Americans and educators to learn and succeed. We seek to:

  • Create unique opportunities for students and the public to contribute to NASA’s work in exploration and discovery.

  • Build a diverse future STEM workforce by engaging students in authentic learning experiences with NASA people, content, and facilities.

  • Strengthen public understanding by enabling powerful connections to NASA’s mission and work.

To achieve these goals, NASA STEM Engagement strives to increase K-12 involvement in NASA projects, enhance higher education, support underrepresented communities, strengthen online education, and boost NASA’s contribution to informal education. The intended outcome is a generation prepared to code, calculate, design, and discover its way to a new era of American innovation.
