This annual contest is for students in grades 6-12 from anywhere in the world. Students develop designs for an orbiting space settlement and related materials. Proposals are due March 1, 2014

Signals of Spring -- ACES (Grades 7-9)
Follow marine animals (e.g., polar bears, sea turtles, sharks and whales) in real-time and apply life and earth science topics to the ocean. Study topics such as ecosystems, biodiversity, cell structures, food webs, and conservation as you make connections to ocean currents, sea-floor features, density and more. Discover the importance of the ocean to humans, as well as our impacts, both positive and negative, on marine environments. 

Astrobiology and the NASA Electronic Professional Development Network (Grades K-12)
Teachers can attend online astrobiology professional development sessions through the NASA Electronic Professional Development Network. 

Space Food for Schools (All Ages)
NASA is offering dehydrated astronaut space food to educational institutions. Would you like to have a piece of history for your classroom or lecture space? Sign up now because a limited number of food packages, each containing approximately three food packets, are available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Space Life Sciences Academy (Higher Education)
The academy will coordinate, develop and implement curricula and course work in space life sciences and in human health and performance disciplines.
