This project will provide NASA with rigorous findings evaluating the extent to which its education portfolio contributes to the following key strategic goals:
- Contribute to the development of the STEM workforce by educating and employing future scientists
- Attract and retain students in STEM disciplines by engaging and educating elementary and secondary students, teachers, and faculty
- Inspire and engage individuals of all ages in NASA’s mission
The project’s first task will be to provide support for the evaluation of NASA’s Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Aerospace Academy (SEMAA) project. The evaluation will assess SEMAA’s effectiveness with regard to both short- and long-term outcomes of interest and determine how well NASA’s intended goals are being implemented across SEMAA project sites.
