Fernbank Science Center

NASA's Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Aerospace Academy is an innovative national project designed to reach K-12 grade students who are traditionally underrepresented in careers involving science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students meet regularly to engage in hands-on, interactive learning sessions that are specifically designed for each grade level.

Locally headquartered at the Fernbank Science Center, the NASA SEMAA Project serves Kindergarten through 12th-grade students throughout DeKalb and the surrounding counties. As one of 13 fully funded NASA SEMAA project sites, this site offers the full complement of SEMAA learning activities and experiences as directed by NASA. This includes: 1) The NASA SEMAA curriculum enhancement activities: a hands-on, inquiry-based K-12 set of curricular support materials developed by NASA and aligned to national math & science standards. 2) The Family Café -- an innovative family involvement component specifically designed to provide parents and other adult family members with the information and support to become active partners in their children's education. 3) The Aerospace Education Laboratory, or AEL -- an electronically enhanced, computerized classroom that allows middle and high school-aged participants to use NASA technology to investigate a series of real-world aerospace challenges. The AEL is also available at no cost to local school groups, scout groups and other youth service organizations.
