NASA’s Universe of Learning collaborates with the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) and Smithsonian Affiliations to create and implement professional development experiences with the informal education community. These professional development experiences draw on science directly from NASA Astrophysics, and support informal education institutions in developing innovative STEM learning models. Recordings of those professional development webinars are available here
As a result of this professional development experience, informal learning institutions have developed and tested sustainable models of innovative STEM learning for their audiences. These models utilize NASA Astrophysics assets and resources in making STEM learning more accessible and compelling.
The informal learning institutions are working to share their program models with the wider informal learning community. Their resulting program models are collected here for other informal learning sites to download and adapt for their local audiences. These resources are free to use and may be adjusted in anyway desired.
