NASA’S SCIENCE MISSION DIRECTORATE GIVES TEENS THEIR “SPACE”

NASA’s SMD launched Mission:Science, a new Web site created specifically for teenagers. Through Mission:Science, teens can access current NASA spacecraft data for their school science projects, conduct real experiments with NASA scientists and locate space-related summer internships.

Mission:Science showcases NASA’s educational science resources and encourages students to study and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). While NASA provides a vast amount of online STEM information for students of all ages, Mission:Science “boosts the content available for this age group,” notes the Outreach manager for SMD, Ruth Netting.

The site also features social networking tools, links to enter science contests or participate in a family science night, information about college research programs, and an array of NASA images, animation, videos and podcasts. Check out the new site athttp://missionscience.nasa.gov
