STEM in the News

Exciting ways students and the community are connecting with STEM.

The East Bay Educational Collaborative (www.ebecri.org), a nonprofit educational company located in Rhode Island, announces two Office of Naval Research grant opportunities for high school science, math and engineering teachers. Both grants provide materials and resources for teachers to use during in person, hybrid or distance learning. Applicants from communities that are connected with the military, Department of Defense or socio-economically disadvantaged communities are prioritized.

Explore NASA resources for students and teachers, K-12, with a section devoted to at-home activities.

Meet Rov-E, a talking robot rover that can answer your questions about Mars.

Access activities inspired by NASA-JPL missions around Earth and beyond.

The Springfield Museums has a page devoted to at-home activities and learning resources related to exhibits and activities at the Museums.

Set up your very own question and answer session with a working scientist.

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Office of STEM has released a spreadsheet containing links to STEM resources for learning at home.

NASA invites video gamers and citizen scientists to embark on virtual ocean research expeditions to help map coral reefs around the world in an effort to better understand these threatened ecosystems.

During the past several years, researchers at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley have developed new instruments that can look below the ocean surface in more detail than ever before. Using techniques originally developed to look at stars, these "fluid-lensing" cameras use complex calculations to undo the optical distortions created by the water over coral reefs.

“NASA STEM Stars” is a webchat series that gives students ages 13+ the opportunity to connect with subject matter experts at NASA.
