NASA Provides a wealth of STEM-focused resources for educators and parents.

Engaging students effectively begins with quality learning materials. NASA provides a treasure trove of these resources for free, which we aggregate here for you. The NASA Office of STEM Engagement works collaboratively with NASA's mission directorates to promote education as an integral component of every major NASA research and development mission. These efforts result in innovative and informative educational materials that engage student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. NASA makes these resources available in many convenient ways which we list below. Browse, download, and use as needed and don't forget to have fun!

Classroom Content & Lesson Plans

NASA Langley is dedicated to supporting teachers as they foster the growth of our nation's youth. Please use the resources listed below to assist you along that process.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics ) is at the core of the NASA mission. However, it takes many professions, backgrounds and interests to operate NASA. As such we hope to inspire the youth of today to use and enhance their talent and skills, whatever those may be, to support the NASA mission or another STEM field.
