21st Century Explorer

NASA’s 21st Century Explorer will:

  • Educate learners of all ages about:

    • space exploration

    • the challenges of long duration space exploration missions

    • the environment in which the human explorer must function, and

    • the technologies required to sustain human life during long duration space travel.

  • Stimulate students’ interest in STEM while simultaneously involving the community, including educators, parents and, family members in this process.

Educational Packages

Each of the twelve, bilingual educational packages consists of:

  • a 30-second, multimedia, student-hosted newsbreak,

  • a web explanation of the space exploration topic,

  • an educator and student hands-on activity guide, and

  • supporting materials (glossary, quiz, and book and web resources).
