NASA Precollege Education Programs

NASA Precollege Education Programs

NASA is taking bold steps at the K–12 grade levels to prepare the next generation of explorers. Building on previous accomplishments, NASA has established a series of innovative programs designed to stimulate student interest in order to motivate higher levels of study in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, subjects.

These activities provide unique learning experiences for students, teachers, administrators and families. NASA strives to ensure that underrepresented and undeserved students participate in education programs, thereby encouraging more of these students to pursue STEM careers.

NASA is also working to develop new digital media methods that will make NASA's exciting discoveries and missions available to K–12 students and educators.
