STEM Enhancement in Earth Science

NNX16AB89A

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

Well-documented trends have been reported nationally of declining interest, poor preparedness, a lack of diverse representation, and low persistence of U.S. students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. SEES addresses the national need to increase the number of high school students, particularly under-represented minorities and those from underserved areas that will pursue STEM college degrees. Through a partnership of institutions and organizations we will use NASA’s earth observing satellites as a catalyst for the development of an Earth Science high school curriculum to be offered online and to implement a high school student internship program. The SEES program 1) utilizes NASA facilities and assets to provide work experience, research, and educational opportunities for high school students to encourage STEM careers and preparation; 2) provide opportunities for students and teachers to participate in experiential learning activities that will connect learners to NASA-unique resources in Earth Science; and 3) prepare STEM educators and leaders to deliver quality STEM instruction utilizing NASA assets and content.

 

The project directly addresses NASA’s education mission goal to attract and retain students in STEM disciplines; contributes to enabling STEM education through mentorship, selection of existing NASA content supporting STEM and the opportunity for high school students and teachers to conduct authentic NASA mission-based research; improves U.S. scientific literacy by integrating identified lessons and data; advances national education goals by utilizing NASA resources that align with the Framework for K-12 Science Education; and leverages efforts through partnerships by drawing upon the strengths of project collaborators.
