Project Description

New toolkit of hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activities based on NASA's continuing pursuit of human exploration of the Moon and Mars and a mobile app that launches users further into the solar system. Physical and digital resources will be shared to leverage  local partnerships to engage diverse audiences and support at home STEM learning beyond museum walls.

Opportunities for NISE Network partners

Physical kits will be distributed to 350 NISE Network partners who have been involved in past Earth & Space projects. Digital materials will also be freely available.
