High school teachers face many challenges — but spending lots of time finding space and earth science supplemental educational materials shouldn’t be one of them.
The Women in Planetary Science recommend the NASA websites below as a starting point for high school teachers interested in using more NASA and NASA-sponsored materials in the classroom. We are also working on a set of profiles of women in planetary science that may be of use to your students as they explore possible careers in space science.
- NASA Earth Science Resources for high school teachers;
- NASA Space Science Resources for high school teachers; and
- NASA Educator Resource Centers, located at most if not all NASA visitor centers and many planetariums, museums, college campuses, and other places where educators gather. One good example is the ERC at Stennis Space Center.
Good luck — and please add your own ideas and resources in the comments; we will update this page frequently.
