Teach STEM? NASA Explorer Schools Can Help With That!

Teachers across the country, regardless of school size, type or geographic location, have seen the benefit of participating in the NASA Explorer Schools project. These teachers have access to free NASA classroom materials and student engagement activities, as well as educator support resources, through the NES Virtual Campus. NES classroom resources are designed to help teachers increase student interest and achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, subjects.

Are you looking for fun, exciting and interactive ways to connect your students to NASA? Designed for teachers in grades 4-12, NES provides a forum for accessing free lessons, student engagement activities, and professional development opportunities centered on NASA missions and STEM topics and careers. NES also offers multiple pathways for you to connect with other motivated STEM educators across the country to share best practices and classroom implementation ideas. Visit the NASA Explorer Schools website to read firsthand stories from participating teachers about the benefits of joining the NES project and implementing NASA resources in the classroom!
