Free, interactive programs allow you and your students to learn more about our home planet and the universe beyond through video-conferencing and Web casts. Students of all ages can participate in live events featuring NASA experts and education specialists. Take a look at our catalog of events and Web cast announcements to find lessons, activities, and presentations that meet your instructional objectives.


Are you a K-12 teacher of STEM disciplines?
Are you looking for a way to enhance your instructional skills, meet your professional development goals,  or find new and exciting resources to use in your learning environments?
Then NASA Electronic Professional Development Network (ePDN) is for you!
NASA’s Learning Environments and Research Network (LE&RN) and the Georgia Institute of Technology have teamed up to create the ePDN, a new initiative dedicated to preparing teachers to engage their students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through the use of NASA-developed learning materials and resources.
The ePDN Offers:
•             Certificate programs (52 hours) in robotics, mathematics, Earth/space science, and technology integration.
•             Flexibility to take individual courses within a certificate or the entire certificate program, both for CEU credit.
•             Resources that teachers can use in the classroom or for personal development.
Applications are now open for the Robotics certificate, which begins in January, 2010. To apply, please visit this link. http://www.nasaepdn.gatech.edu/certificates.php
