Funder: The National Aeronautics and Space Adminstration (NASA) and NASA Solar System Exploration Education and Public Outreach Forum, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)

The project combines out-of-school time (OST) professional advisors, the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST), and NASA experts from across the agency to use research-based strategies to develop afterschool activity guides adapted from NASA Planetary Science formal education curricula.


The project combines out-of-school time (OST) professional advisors, the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST), and NASA experts from across the agency to use research-based strategies to develop afterschool activity guides adapted from NASA Planetary Science formal education curricula.  The objectives of the project are to:


  1. enable OST professionals to provide engaging, enriching STEM experiences by using their input to adapt existing formal education curricula for out-of-school time use;
  2. develop a training model to build the capacity of OST leaders;
  3. develop and pilot an associated training video;
  4. pilot and evaluate the training in California and New York, and;
  5. disseminate the adapted model.


NIOST will provide evaluation services in support of all phases of the project.  NIOST will review the adaptation of the activity guide development, provide input for a preliminary design of the training model and supplemental video, and identify ways for participants to progress in NASA OST educational offerings.
