NSPIRESNASA Seeks Education Partners To Help Inspire The Next Generation Of Explorers

NASA encourages institutional partnerships as a means to help achieve its strategic goals for education, including informal education done at museums, science centers, and planetariums. As a U.S. federal agency is committed to sharing the excitement of NASA's space-based missions and inspiring students of all ages to pursue studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

NASA seeks unfunded partnerships with organizations to engage new or broader audiences on a national scale. The agency will work collaboratively to leverage partners' unique resources.  Potential partnership activities are varied. NASA is receptive to a broad range of possibilities from creative organizations with wide-ranging areas of expertise.

In this image, Glenn enters his Friendship 7 capsule with assistance from technicians to begin his historic flight.

Since NASA’s creation, the Agency has taken on challenging missions with help from diverse external partners from industry, academia, other Federal agencies, not-for-profit organizations, and international stakeholders.  These collaborations have evolved from shared science, technology, engineering, commerce, and education goals.  The Space Act inspired these partnerships, and the Vision for Space Exploration is no less explicit in requiring innovative partnerships and collaborative expansions.  NASA’s education program and its pathfinder initiatives have attracted continuous and growing interest by legislative, industry, academic, community, and professional education organizations. Individually and collectively, these groups provide NASA with the opportunity to raise the visibility, scope, and depth of reach with NASA’s educational opportunities.

NASA will maintain and expand partnership arrangements to meet the Agency’s increasingly complex and diverse needs. NASA Education will continue to engage in, as well as expand, partnership arrangements with key administration and education partners. Partners are drawn from public schools, community colleges, and public and private universities.
