NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) has an essential role in NASA's education mission “to inspire the next generation of explorers.” SMD encourages researchers to participate in education and public outreach (E/PO) in a meaningful way. Here you will find information that will allow you to:

  • Become part of SMD’s E/PO community or partner with a community member
  • Participate in an SMD Education opportunity
  • Find funding opportunities to propose an E/PO project to SMD
  • Find resources for your programs

NASA Wavelength is an intuitive and searchable database of SMD educational products and activities. Find resources for your classroom visit or community event!

Created in response to requests for “quick references to E/PO resources” from scientists, the Astrophysics E/PO Resource Sampler and Planetary Science E/PO Resource Sampler are quick-start guides and “samplers” of the variety of Astrophysics and Planetary Science education and public outreach (E/PO) resources.

If you are an Earth or space science researcher who is doing - or interested in - education and public outreach, and would like to be part of SMD’s E/PO Community, please contact the SMD Education Forum that most closely aligns with your interests; contacts are listed at the top of the People tab.

Sharing the data collected so far by citizen scientists. Included will be a presentation by guest scientists, including citizen scientists. Register: http://bit.ly/Buzz-CS3

April 2019-Land Cover (Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, Fall in the Southern Hemisphere) Begins April 1, 2019!

Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs) are focused periods of time where participants are encouraged to collect large amounts of data and enter it in the GLOBE database. Data that is collected during an IOP will provide other GLOBE students, scientists, researchers, and educators large amounts of concentrated data over a short period of time. This can also be referred to as "Data...
