Science Mission Directorate Education Conferences
The Science Mission Directorate (SMD) sponsors over 300 regional and national education, public outreach, and science conferences. These conferences are meant to involve the educational community in the discoveries and knowledge of space science.
Earth and Space Scientist Training and Workshops
Space scientists looking for training in the area of education have several useful programs to choose from. Scientist training focuses on training scientists and engineers to play effective roles in improving k-12 science education and how to work in conjunction with educators and students.
Education standards are produced for each subject area over a given grade level. On a national and state scale, these provide criteria with which local groups can develop programs to instill scientific understanding and ability in students.
