NASA Earth Science Education & Public Outreach Forum

In 2010, IGES played a key role in the development of a web portal for the Earth Science E/PO community: www.smdepo.org The site serves as a forum for community updates and announcements, showcasing professional development tools, as well as for sharing work done by fellow community members.

There are four NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Education and Public Outreach (E/PO) forums, one each for Earth science, astrophysics, heliophysics and planetary science. In addition to opportunities for cross-forum collaboration, each forum has its own workspace on the website for communicating, planning and collaborating on activities projects, and resources. 

IGES leads NASA’s Earth Science E/PO Forum, in partnership with the Universities Space Research Association’s Lunar Planetary Institute and NASA’s Goddard Spaceflight Center.
