SEMAA students participate in many different environments. Image Credit: NASA SEMAANASA SEMAA sites at Tennessee State University, or TSU, New Mexico State University, and the Miami-Dade County Public Schools (the fourth largest school district in the nation) are collaborating on a Discovery Research K-12 grant from NSF totaling $300,000. These SEMAA sites are working together to advance STEM education by pilot-testing an exciting NASA based high school curriculum in astrobiology, and conducting educational research on the project and its impacts on underrepresented students (to be led by researchers from TSU).
"The NASA SEMAA Project has a foundation for K-12 STEM education and a presence in underserved communities that is valuable to NSF's mission".
