Educators in Grades K-12

The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative
at Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Since the earliest days of astronomy, astronomers have shared a single goal - to see more, see farther, see deeper.

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STSCI) will be joining NASA as a special guest to share their knowledge about the technology behind the Hubble Space Telescope and how it has driven today's explorations into to deep space.  STSCI operates the science program for the Hubble Space Telescope and will conduct the science and mission operations for the James Webb Space Telescope.  STSCI supports other astronomy programs and conducts world-class scientific research, we hope to see you there!

Discover related NASA activities and resources for the classroom on deep space and related disciplines such as physics, math, space technology, and even music!
