The Earth Observatory
Visit the highly informative and educational Earth Observatory.  It provides feature articles, images, experiments, and resources for the classroom and the Media.

NASA Wavelength
This comprehensive portal is your pathway into a digital collection of Earth and space science resources for educators of all levels – from elementary to college, to out-of-school programs. These resources, developed through funding of the NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD), have undergone a peer-review process through which educators and scientists ensure the content is accurate and useful in an educational setting. Use NASA Wavelength to quickly and easily locate resources, connect them to other websites using atom feeds, and even share the resources you discover with others through social media and email.

MY NASA DATA (MND) is a tool that allows anyone to make use of satellite data that was previously unavailable. Through the use of MND's Live Access Server (LAS) a multitude of charts, plots and graphs can be generated using a wide variety of constraints. This site provides a large number of lesson plans with a wide variety of topics, all with the students in mind. Not only can you use our lesson plans, you can use the LAS to improve the ones that you are currently implementing in your classroom.

The Space Place
The Space Place is a NASA educational outreach program that brings the excitement and wonder of space to children and adults of every age and educational background. Fun and original projects and activities provide a delightful introduction to basic space science and technology concepts, as well as NASA’s visionary programs and missions.

The CERES S’COOL Project
S’COOL - Students’ Cloud Observations On-Line - is a project which involves school children in real science. They provide ground truth measurements to assist in the validation of the CERES instrument. They can also compare the surface - and space-based observations to learn more about clouds and climate.

NASA GISS Institute on Climate and Planets
The Institute on Climate and Planets is a research, science education, and minority outreach program at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies. The ICP involves pre-college and undergraduate students in NASA climate and planetary investigations in collaboration with teachers and faculty from their schools and colleges, and GISS research scientists.

The Remote Sensing Tutorial
This is a tutorial approach to learning about the role of space science and technology in monitoring the Earth’s surface and atmosphere.

Eyes On The Earth 3D
Fly alongside NASA satellites in 3D.

Beautiful Earth
BELLA GAIA releases a music video from its award winning album and track titled "Ocean's Blood."

The Adventure of Echo the Bat
The Adventure of Echo the Bat is a program with both online and classroom components. It teaches "understanding light" and the "electromagnetic spectrum" as a foundation for Remote Sensing.

Landsat in the Classroom
A collection of Landsat-based classroom activities for grades K-12.

PUMAS -- Practical Uses of Math And Science
PUMAS is an on-line journal, a web-based collection of examples aimed at giving K-12 teachers insights into how the math and science they teach can be used in everyday life. Scientists contribute their expertise by writing brief examples, which may be activities, anecdotes, descriptions of "neat ideas," formal exercises, puzzles, or demonstrations. PUMAS offers researchers a way to make a substantial contribution to pre-college education with a relatively small investment of time and effort, and at the same time, to get a peer-reviewed science education journal article published on the web.

NASA Earth Science Presentations
Looking for an exciting new way to communicate NASA Earth Science? This website provides presentation material that was developed to help explain unique phenomena, science research results, ideas, and/or examples of world change. PowerPoint and Keynote presentations as well as Story Text files are available for download for each topic. This site is a great resource for those interested in using powerful visualizations and images to communicate science.
