Are you passionate about learning science? Do you spend hours in the lab? Then you are going to like this one. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has prepared something exciting for you. A new online science resource for educators and their students called NASA Wavelength is aimed to educate people about the solar system and its components and show how the universe is organized.

The site provides its users with hundreds of resources arranged by subject matter and age-grade from pre-kindergarten and elementary to college-level and informal education. The NASA Wavelength website also features multiple extracurricular programs related to science. Teachers, who will use the site, will not only get additional information for their science classes but also find recommendations on creating a good lesson plan, activities which can be used for practice, supplementary materials and their cost and even the learning time required to cover a particular topic.

Stephanie Stockman, education lead for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) in Washington, is very enthusiastic about the project and thinks it will help many teachers to improve their teaching methods as well as advance their skills. NASA expects the website users return the favor by providing accurate and detailed feedback, which will help improve the quality of the content and the services in general.

NASA has long since become a devoted contributor to the programs, which aim to develop and promote science education resources nationwide, using NASA facilities and experience.

The Wavelength website provides information on resources, which help students and teachers learn about NASA program participation, exhibitions and shows etc. The site is designed to keep people informed on the latest developments and breakthroughs. All registered users can stay updated with what’s new in science through emails and social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and LinkedIn.

Before it was launched the website had been tested by educators from all over the U.S. who worked with the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, the Adler Planetarium and the Space Sciences Laboratory and Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley. SMD specialists keep on managing, coordinating and updating the site.

NASA sees its mission in making scientific knowledge of the solar system, the Sun and Earth accessible to people everywhere. They are currently seeking to reach wider audience and engage more people into science with the support of museums, home schools and science camps.
