The National Aeronautics & Space Administration and its Jet Propulsion Laboratory are committed to education. Educators for K-12 can get single copies of a variety of NASA/JPL teaching materials AT NO CHARGE from the JPL Educator Resource Center in Pomona. You can visit the Resource Center in person and select materials from hundreds of items, including Educator Guides and NASA Education Standards “Quilts.” Most of the activities for the classroom align to both the National/California Science/Math standards. The NASA Education Standards “Quilts” are available at: “Standards Quilts”. These lessons were developed to make it easier for educators to find NASA products and activities. Visit the website to freely find, download, order or print NASA curricular materials.
This is an amazing center with posters, videos, activity books, and much more, all available at no charge to teachers. Staff is available to assist you in customizing a program for your classroom needs. A teacher information package of printed materials is free and includes (subject to supplies on hand) lithograph pictures, posters, brochures, teacher guides with activities and booklets about NASA/JPL missions.
