Schools from across the country are eligible to apply online for an opportunity to partner with NASA in a program designed to bring engaging mathematics, science and technology learning to educators, students and families.
Each spring, a three-year partnership is established between NASA and 50 new NASA Explorer School teams, consisting of teachers and education administrators from diverse communities across the country.
NASA invites the selected teams to work with education specialists from NASA centers in an effort to spark innovative science and mathematics instruction for students in grades 4 through 9. While partnered with NASA, NASA Explorer School teams will acquire new teaching resources and technology tools using NASA's unique content, experts and other resources -- to provide exciting learning experiences in science, mathematics and technology for students.
The NASA Explorer Schools project is currently not accepting applications.
The project is undergoing a redesign that will allow the agency to better serve a larger population of schools nationwide. NASA will continue to support active NASA Explorer Schools already enrolled in the project.
NASA is currently reviewing all K-12 school projects to ensure that the most effective and beneficial opportunities are being provided. NASA Office of Education maintains its commitment to investing in programs and activities that inspire and engage students, educators, families and communities in the excitement and discovery of exploration.
The agency recognizes your interest in using NASA resources to help motivate and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
