LEARN - Long-term Engagement in Authentic Research with NASA


The NASA LEARN Project is an innovative program that provides educators with on-site research and training with NASA Scientists in the summer and guided research projects that continue on throughout the school year. These educators conduct their own research with help of a team of NASA Scientists and share and integrate these projects into the classroom.

“Never in my career as a teacher have I actually looked at data in this way. LEARN is totally different from everything else- but it goes along with the trend of not only better pedagogy but also expanding personal understanding of science. We don’t often model “being the scientist” for our students, but we ask them to do it every day for 45 minutes. LEARN allows me to be a better model of a scientist for my students.”

–Jodie Harnden, LEARN teacher
