NASA Explorer Schools

The following web seminars were part of a series of electronic professional development experiences sponsored by the NASA Explorer Schools (NES) project. NASA Explorer Schools invests in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics educators to inspire and engage a whole generation of future scientists, engineers and technicians that NASA needs to continue its journey. NES gives educators of grades 4-12 free access to NASA’s people, missions, research, and facilities. NES takes the work out of searching through thousands of materials on the NASA website and provides a comprehensive set of teaching materials for dozens of STEM concepts.
