NASA Explores

NASA LogoNASA Explores provides free weekly K-12 educational articles and lesson plans on current NASA projects. Printable and downloadable, these supplemental curriculum resources meet national education standards.

NASAexplores is an education initiative from NASA. NASAexplores is managed and operated by the Marshall Space Flight Center Education Programs Department on behalf of NASA's Aerospace Technology Enterprise and the Human Exploration and Development of Space (HEDS) Enterprise.

NASA's Aerospace Technology Enterprise recognizes that its national leadership role in Aerospace research offers unique opportunities to support education outreach activities. It is firmly committed to supporting the NASA Implementation Plan for Education, with its emphasis on contributing to educational excellence, developing alliances with key external constituencies, and involving the educational community at all levels in its projects and programs.

The goal of the HEDS Enterprise is to open the space frontier by exploring, using, and enabling the development of space. The Enterprise wants to increase human knowledge of nature's processes using the space environment, to explore the solar system, to achieve routine space travel, and to enrich life on Earth through people living and working in space.

Mission Statement:
NASAexplores will generate interest in and understanding of NASA's research and technology, and inspire the educational community, by using the Internet to provide timely, quality standards-based educational materials.

Each week two new articles are published about a current NASA Aerospace Technology or HEDS project. NASAexplores educators adapt the articles for three grade levels: K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. Lesson plans/activities support the concepts raised by the articles. These materials incorporate and support national educational standards in math, science, geography, and technology. Additionally, topics align with standard subject areas, such as chemistry, biology, algebra, etc.
