ESMD Implementation
outcomes for the 2006 nasa strategic plan
Task: Align with the three Education Priorities:

- Workforce Development

- Strengthening the Pipeline

- Public Benefit

The NASA Education portfolio is guided by three expected outcomes:

Outcome 1:Contribute to the development of the STEM workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA’s strategic goals, through a portfolio of investments.

Outcome 2:Attract and retain students in STEM disciplines through a progression of educational opportunities for students, teachers and faculty.

Outcome 3:Build strategic partnerships and linkages between STEM formal and informal education providers that promote STEM literacy and awareness of NASA’s mission.

contributions to nasa education outcomes
Consortium XYZ – excerpt from FY2006 Budget Package

The overarching theme of our program is the development of aerospace and STEM workforce --

for NASA, XYZ Consortium, and the Nation. Our comprehensive mix of program elements is based

upon the needs and capabilities of XYZ Consortium in addressing NASA Education Outcomes:

Aerospace Workforce Development

is XYZ Consortium’s prime goal, supported by each of the following elements, and by interdisciplinary, team-mission projects

and links with NASA (ED-1,2)

Faculty Researchers

are resources at the highest level in the workforce, to provide enhanced emphasis on student research, NASA collaboration,

and Center visits (ED-1,2)

Graduate Fellowships

support mentored research for graduate student development, with enhanced NASA collaboration for Fellowship projects and

NASA Center visits (ED-1,2)

Undergraduate Scholarships

support mentored research for undergraduate students, with enhanced participation in NASA internship programs (ED-1,2)

Teacher Training

prepares teachers for inspiring students in the STEM pipeline, with enhanced NASA-based materials for use in classrooms,

and with pre-service internships (ED-2)

Public Support

is promoted through involvement for awareness of aerospace issues and NASA, with enhanced support for leveraging

Informal education partnerships (ED-3)

Contributions to NASA Education Outcomes
demonstrating outcomes and results
Demonstrating Outcomes and Results
  • Objectivesof the XYZ Consortium Fellowship/Scholarship Program
    • Increased numbers of people training for the workforce in space-related fields
    • Effective preparation based upon research experiences for the students

Results:

public outreach versus informal education
Public Outreach

The intent is to raise awareness of, or interest in, NASA, its goals, missions

and/or programs, and to develop an appreciation for and exposure to science,

technology, research and exploration.

Informal Education

The intent is to increase learning, to educate students, educators and the

general public on specific science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM)

content areas, and to expand the nation’s future STEM workforce.

In addition to intent, an Informal Education project must also include at

least two of the following components:

Supplemental Materials/Handouts
