IGES is leading the NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative (NESEC) in strong partnership with the world-renowned Earth sciences organizations at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and Langley Research Center (LaRC). The NESEC award is funded through a NASA cooperative agreement (1995-2025) that is part of the NASA Science Activation Program collective of projects.
NESEC’s goal is to enable broad participation in authentic NASA Earth STEM experiences for lifelong learners. We do this by creating engaging, meaningful, and authentic STEM experiences and resources that are:
- Based on NASA Earth science
- Tailored to specific audiences’ needs
- Supportive of diverse learners throughout their lifetimes
- Delivered broadly through strategic partnerships
