Research Education Partnerships with Windows to the Universe

Windows to the Universe reaches a global community of over 16 million learners and educators in English and Spanish annually. Over the past 15 years, we have collaborated with over 100 projects, sponsored by NASA and NSF, to develop new website content, interactives, and curriculum resources that highlight specific research projects or missions.

Collaboration with the Windows to the Universe project offers a cost-effective approach to integrating research and education, which is increasingly recognized as a goal of NASA, NSF, and other federal agencies. Our large audience, record of continued service, and the large scope of our content resources and software infrastructure allow collaborating scientists, research and educational projects to reach large numbers of learners effectively and efficiently, building on the resources we have developed over the past decade. Our close connection to teachers, through the National Earth Science Teachers Association, is optimal for getting your content to teachers quickly and effectively.

Scientists interested in discussing opportunities for collaboration through their research projects or missions are invited to contact the Windows to the Universe PI, Dr. Roberta Johnson, NESTA Executive Director and Director of Windows to the Universe, for further information by email at rmjohnsn@nestanet.org or by phone at 303-929-1606.
