EEAB is a student involvement program that allows teachers and their students in grades 5- 14 to get actively involved in the excitement and journey of exploration, discovery, and the process of science. This program is facilitated by the Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) Education Program, housed at NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas.
EEAB is designed to facilitate student-driven, authentic research projects that study the Earth and if desired, compare Earth to other planetary bodies such as the Moon and Mars. Members of the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, housed within the Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science Division, work with crew on the International Space Station (ISS) to acquire imagery for scientific and public interest purposes. These spectacular images can be used as a hook for getting students interested Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) related content.
