Armstrong Educator Resource Center
October 29, 2013

 NASA has established the Educator Resource Center Network (ERCN) to provide educators across the country with information about NASA, and the educational resources and services it provides. NASA's unique research and missions have allowed NASA Education to produce educational materials that engage student interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and support classroom curricula.

The Educator Resource Center (ERC) at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center provides in-service, pre-service, and informal educators in Southern California and Arizona with an easily accessible source of materials that reflect NASA’s current research and technology. These materials relate to curriculum areas such as Human Exploration, Development of Space, Earth Science, Space Science, Life Science, Astronomy, Aerospace Technology, and Biological and Physical Research. NASA educational materials are available for FREE, including posters, lithographs, curriculum guides, briefs, educational activities, videos, CDs, DVDs, Podcasts, and more.

Educators can request materials by sending in a written request, by email, or by calling the NASA Armstrong Educator Resource Center.

Ways Educators Can Receive NASA Materials

NASA is working hard to make their materials easily accessible to the education community through multiple dissemination channels – web, mail, and ERC site visits. Ways to receive materials include:

  • Visit or contact the NASA Dryden Educator Resource Center
  • Download educational resources from the NASA Portal


The NASA Portal serves as the gateway for information regarding content, programs, and services offered by NASA for the general public and, specifically, for the education community. It provides

educators access to curriculum support materials that they may download and print from the following Web sites:

Educator Guides, Lithographs, Posters, Brochures, Bookmarks
