NASA collaborates with Khan Academy to bring STEM opportunities to online learners #makereducation

Nasakhanacad

The educational site Khan Academy has teamed up with NASA to provide online resources for students! via phys.org.

The interactive education lessons invite users to become actively engaged in the scientific and mathematical protocols that NASA uses everyday to measure our universe, to explore the exciting engineering challenges involved in launching and landing spacecraft on Mars, and to learn about other space exploration endeavors and destinations.

Exciting and realistic simulations, challenges and games transport students deep into STEM subjects, blending NASA’s space exploration expertise with Khan Academy’s compelling approach to online self-paced learning. The innovative collaboration on this pilot program began last summer with NASA supplying technical content and subject matter experts to ensure authenticity of the learning experiences and Khan providing proven expertise in delivering interactive online learning experiences for millions of learners worldwide.
