Earth Science Education Catalog

The NASA Earth Science Education Catalog provides information about Agency-wide Earth system science education programs and resources for all education audiences.

NASA's Earth Science Education Program offers a diverse array of programs and resources for formal classroom instruction, informal education, and professional and workforce development. The complete listing of Earth Science education programs, products and resources, along with NASA-wide resources for educators, is provided in this online catalog. The Elementary & Secondary, Higher Education, and Informal Education sections feature regional and national programs. Products & Resources identifies Earth Science products and resources for these three educational communities. Products and resources included in this catalog have passed the Education Product Review, an independent peer review that ensures NASA education products are of high quality and meet science education standards. Agency-wide resources for educators are identified in the NASA Resources for Educators.

Elementary & Secondary Programs

NASA's elementary and secondary programs draw on the compelling context of Earth system science to support teacher professional development and promote student achievement in STEM.

Higher Education Programs

NASA's Earth science education program is strengthening its involvement with higher education institutions to ensure that NASA can meet future workforce needs in Earth system science research, applications and related fields, and to improve the scientific education of students bound for other professions.

Informal Education Programs

NASA's ESE seeks to increase public scientific literacy of Earth system science and climate change by engaging the public in shaping and sharing the experience of exploration and discovery.

Learning Resources

NASA produces and sponsors a wide-ranging suite of Earth system science education products for elementary through post secondary instruction and informal education. NASA education materials are designed to support standards-based education (including science, mathematics, geography and technology standards) and to supplement existing curricula.
