For almost 50 years, Landsat satellites have collected images of Earth from space, representing the longest continuous space-based record of our planet’s surface. Create art or make a craft that’s inspired by a favorite Landsat image or the satellite itself, and share it with us on social media.
The Minority Serving Institutions Exchange (MSI) is a tool that supports your search for innovative and diverse academic collaborators by curating STEM offerings and capability statements of MSIs nationwide. The MSI Exchange can inform partnerships for teaming opportunities and competitive federal awards such as contracts, cooperative agreements, and grants.
Student Launch is a research-based, competitive, experiential exploration activity. This project offers multiple challenges reaching a broad audience of middle and high schools, colleges, and universities across the nation.
This competition is an opportunity for students attending a Tribal College or University, a Native American-Serving Nontribal Institution, or who are members of an active American Indian Science and Engineering Society collegiate chapter to design, build, and fly a high-powered rocket.
Reference information and resources to provide insight into sending your science experiment or technology demonstration to the space station.
Conducting research on the ISS National Laboratory demonstrates to U.S. citizens and the world that space is accessible, affordable, and capable of supporting the research and development necessary to make the fundamental business case for sustainable industrial demand in low Earth orbit.
Let NASA’s Science Activation program bring the universe to you! We’re inviting every student, educator, and lifelong learner to share in the excitement of scientific discovery and space exploration through these unique opportunities. Science Activation reaches learners in all 50 states and more than 110 countries around the world.
NASA’s citizen science projects are collaborations between scientists and interested members of the public.
Through these collaborations, volunteers (known as citizen scientists) have helped make thousands of important scientific discoveries. More than 410 NASA citizen scientists have been named as co-authors on refereed scientific publications. NASA citizen science projects are open to everyone around the world, not limited to U.S. citizens or residents.
