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.

We would like to share about the New York Academy of Sciences’ Scientist-in-Residence program (SIR), which pairs science mentors with NYC public school educators and supports them in creating and implementing a year-long research project.

SiR is open to graduate students, postdocs, and STEM professionals who are interested in volunteering in a classroom, mentoring students and sharing their passion for the sciences.

Heat Season: The Latest Climate Curve Ball by The Science & Entertainment Exchange

About the event:

Most of us welcome summer, happily transitioning from winter’s hibernation spent bundled up in wooly sweaters to the carefree season of shorts and bathing suits. But the extreme, record-breaking high temperatures of 2021 signal the arrival of a new and deadly season. Impacting parts of the country that traditionally enjoy moderate summers, heat season is now brutalizing cities across the...
