NASA Teams Engaging Affiliated Museums and Informal Institutions (TEAM II)
Next Gen STEM, a project of NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement, enables informal education institutions to bring meaningful NASA connections and mission-inspired STEM content and programs into their communities via the TEAM II competitive awards program.
Whether you are looking for activities to do as a family, teach specific mission-related or STEM concepts to students or want to get creative and learn how to draw Artemis, there is something for everyone.
NASA STEM Engagement fosters an array of new partnerships that connect students from across the nation with NASA’s most exciting endeavors. These efforts reach students as young as prekindergarten through university undergraduates, including students from groups and communities underrepresented in STEM. Through partnerships between industry and NASA’s experts and resources, these agreements forge connections to the Artemis missions, the Mars Perseverance landing, STEM careers, and more.

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.
