Funding Opportunities
A NASA-funded small grant program that pairs education professionals with scientists to enhance science education in the classroom and beyond


NASA’s Science Mission Directorate has restructured its education program. As a result, we were unable to issue a call for Cycle 23 E/PO proposals. These grants were for HST Principal Investigators and Hubble Fellows. They provided NASA funding for small projects that promote science education through astronomy and space science at all levels, especially pre-college. The program paired astronomers and space scientists with professionals in the education and outreach communities.

A series of papers detailing the results of various experiments and programs conducted by the Space Telescope Science Institute's Office of Public Outreach.

NO. 101: Looking Beyond Boundaries: An Educational Experiment Utilizing Live Interactive Broadcasting on the Web

Space Telescope Science Institute's collaboration with the San Francisco Exploratorium, a cutting-edge science museum, to produce live, interactive Web casts twice daily during the 1997 Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Mission.

Authors: C.A. Christian, B. Eisenhamer, C. Rest, R. Semper, and Z. Vella

NO. 102: The Public Impact of Hubble Space Telescope

A preliminary investigation of the impact of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, primarily on the US public. The report was crafted in support of the Hubble Space Telescope Second Decade Committee's deliberations regarding the optimal future use of HST, and for long term planning for operation of NASA's Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST).

Authors: C.A. Christian and A. Kinney

NO. 103: Amazing Space: Creating Educational Resources from Current Scientific Research Results from the Hubble Space Telescope

A report on Amazing Space, a program designed to enhance students' mathematics, science, and techology skills using recent data and results from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope missions.

Authors: C.A. Christian, B. Eisenhamer, Jonathan Eisenhamer, and Terry Teays
