Current CASIS education partners include more than 40 organizations in the Space Station Explorers Consortium, which bring the excitement of space-based research to students, parents, and educators through standards-aligned curriculum, interdisciplinary programs, and even student-launched investigations. Through this latest research announcement, we seek to grow our existing ISS National Lab educational programming.
Concepts submitted in response to this announcement must specifically state how proposed initiatives will target and reach underrepresented demographics—and must also address at least one of the following goals:
- Expanding the Space Station Explorers Consortium and offerings to increase participation in and/or digital engagement with existing or new partner programs.
- Creating higher-education initiatives that enable students to explore education, background, pathways, and career opportunities associated with space-based research and development or the commercialization of low Earth orbit.
- Digitizing space-themed K-12 or higher-education programming.
