NASA to Fund Innovative Museum Exhibits and Planetarium Shows

Innovative planetarium shows and traveling museum exhibits are among nine projects NASA has selected to receive agency funding this year. NASA’s Competitive Program for Science Museums and Planetariums will provide $7 million in grants to enhance educational outreach related to space exploration, aeronautics, space science, Earth science and microgravity. For a list of the selected projects, visit: http://nspires.nasaprs.com. Click on “Selected Proposals” and look for Competitive Program for Science Museums and Planetariums.

The selected organizations will partner with NASA’s Museum Alliance, an Internet-based, national network of more than 400 science and nature centers, planetariums, museums, aquariums, zoos and related organizations. The projects will engage the public and educators by providing NASA-inspired space, science, technology, engineering and mathematics learning opportunities.
