NASA is turning the page to a new chapter of human space exploration with Artemis missions to land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon. All schools, museums, youth serving organizations, universities and other STEM organizations in the United States and its territories are invited to send a recorded video pledge to the Moon aboard the Artemis I mission.
There are 8 days left to submit your video. Submissions are due June 4.
“NASA STEM Stars” is a webchat series that connects students with subject matter experts to learn about STEM careers and ask questions about STEM topics. Next week, astrobiologist and graphic artist Aaron Gronstal will discuss how he uses his graphic artist superpowers to make science easier to understand.
Watch the live event and ask your questions about pursuing careers in STEM.
In this new STEMonstration episode, K-12 students view some spectacular images of Earth with NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik. The International Space Station serves as an Earth-monitoring and diagnostic station, with astronauts observing and resolving critical environmental issues that affect us directly. The Classroom Connection released with this video enables students to further explore the physical changes of Earth’s surface caused by climate change.
To watch the Earth Observation episode and conduct the corresponding activity, visit the STEMonstration website.
Audience:Educators, Parents, Caregivers and Students in Grades 3-6
Entry Deadline: May 31
There are four days remaining to enter the NASA Space Place Art Challenge for May. This month’s topic is NASA’s OSIRIS-REx.
Last fall, the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft scooped up a small container of rocks and dust from an asteroid called Bennu. Now, OSIRIS-REx and its special sample of space rocks are making their journey back to Earth. This month’s challenge encourages students to use their imaginations to draw what they think scientists will find when they open OSIRIS-REx’s sample container. Access the challenge here!
This fall, students in grades 6-12 can take part in the NASA TechRise Student Challenge for a chance to send an experiment on a suborbital rocket. Educators are invited to attend a virtual kickoff event to start planning, get inspired and engage with NASA experts. Click here to RSVP.
NASA and the Houston Cinema Arts Society invite professional and aspiring filmmakers to share their works using NASA imagery. The CineSpace competition will accept all genres, including narrative, documentary, comedy, drama, animation and others, up to 10 minutes long.
NASA is seeking proposals from U.S. nonprofit science museums, planetariums, youth-serving organizations and libraries interested in offering inquiry- or experiential-based opportunities that include NASA education and research. An amendment to the TEAM II information has been posted.
Proposers to the Standard Awards for TEAM II Program Element Appendix are advised that the optional notice of intent (NOI) deadline has been extended to 11:59 p.m. EDT June 2, 2021. No NOI is requested for Community Anchor proposals.
