Project timeline

  • Goal 1: Enable inclusive STEM education for participating students
    • Objective 1.1 Promote the development of participants’ STEM career skills by engaging them in equitable, accessible, learner-centered educational experiences
    • Objective 1.2 Increase opportunities for participants to develop their STEM identities as learners and practitioners
    • Objective 1.3 Advance participants’ understanding of the importance of internal, external, organizational, and worldview diversity in education and the workplace
    • Objective 1.4 Grow learners’ awareness of cultural perspectives of science
  • Goal 2: Advance learners’ understanding of the process of science
    • Objective 2.1 Advance learners’ abilities to conduct rigorous, relevant research using scientific data they collect during eclipse campaigns as well as relevant NASA data
    • Objective 2.2 Increase participation in community of STEM activities, including publishing results and sharing knowledge
    • Objective 2.3 Grow learners’ understanding of and interest in STEM careers as well as access to and interaction with diverse subject matter experts (SMEs)
  • Goal 3: Create, enhance, and sustain networks and partnerships
    • Objective 3.1 Grow the number of institutions that engage learners in research involving remote sensing platforms, especially at minority serving institutions and community colleges, and grow collaborations amongst the programs
    • Objective 3.2 Increase capacities among participants, leaders, and SMEs to offer inclusive, equitable STEM education by leveraging best practices and the expertise of the NEBP Education Advisory Board, Space Grant network, SciAct collaborators, and industry partners
    • Objective 3.3 Advance equitable, accessible national eclipse education capabilities through collaboration with the SciAct Heliophysics Education Activation Team (HEAT) and SciAct Eclipse Soundscapes: Citizen Science Project
    • Objective 3.4: Create connections with other STEM networks to grow in new directions
