MMS: Media and Education Technology Incubation (METI) Lab

Overview
Program Element / Activity Title:
MMS: Media and Education Technology Incubation (METI) Lab
E/PO Project Name:
Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) Mission
Contact Information:
Code 672
NASA GSFC
Greenbelt, MD 20771
Program Element / Activity Partners within NASA:
MMS, Alex Young, Heliophysics EPO, Planetary EPO, Science Visualization Lab, MMS Interns, ERC
Short Description:

MMS will work closely with Heliophysics E/PO lead, Alex Young, to develop a Media and Eduaitonal Techlology Incubation (METI) lab. This lab will be operate as a ‘think-tank’ space to assist internal personnel from Heliopysics and Planetary in the development of mission outreach ideas and opportunities related to cutting edge technologies including 2D/3D printing, model building, chroma key use and mobile media. The evaluation will include surveys at the end of workshops to show the effect on teachers’ knowledge and intent to use, and a follow up survey nine months later on actual implementation.
