How do I participate in EEAB?
There are many options for participation in Expedition Earth and Beyond (EEAB).
EEAB materials and opportunities are designed to expose your students to real
science and scientists, help them get ready to become NASA's next generation
of scientists and explorers, and prepare them for the 21st Century workforce!
EEAB will help you address Common Core, the Next Generation Science Standards,
your State Standards and so much more!
As you get started, think about how much time you want to have your students
involved. Below are a few examples of what you may consider:
- Limited Time Frame for Participation: You may want to connect during some of our distance learning classroom connections. These opportunities connect students with scientists during live, interactive and informative presentations.
- A Week or Two for Participation: You may consider using some of the Launchpad activities. These curricular resources are designed to help you teach what you need to teach, and help students gain interest, skills and knowledge that may lead them to want to conduct authentic research. Materials are Standards-aligned and can be adjusted to fit your individual classroom needs.
- At Least 4 Weeks for Participation: You may want to have your students conduct authentic research. As part of this experience, students can also submit a New Data Request to have an astronaut potentially take a new image of Earth to help supplement the data and images they are using as part of their investigation. Your level of participation is up to you!
- Preparing the Next Generation of Scientists and Explorers: The materials created for this program are designed to help model the process of science so students in your classrooms have the opportunity to conduct authentic research following similar procedures professionals use! Help expose students to real science, allow them to contribute to solving real scientific questions and problems, and help students get ready to become NASA's next generation of scientists and explorers!
