Origins Education Forum

You can form a partnership with a scientist to carry out education and public outreach activities. The easiest way to find a scientist is through a NASA broker/facilitator, who you can locate via the Education Support Network:

Education Support Network

NASA's Science Mission Directorate created the Education and Public Outreach (E/PO)  Support Network as a part of its education initiative.  Your primary contacts in the Support Network are (1) the Forum associated with particular scientific research areas, and (2) the Broker/Facilitator associated with the geographical region where you are located.  The forums are associations of education and outreach professionals, working to maximize the efforts of NASA science missions to bring that science to the public.  The Broker/Facilitators help science researchers and educators connect with each other and with science missions and resources.

Night Sky Network (NSN)

Astronomy clubs across the country, representing more than 50,000 astronomy enthusiasts, are engaged in educational outreach. NASA, in collaboration with the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, is helping by providing products, materials and training to the astronomy clubs. The clubs, in turn, will be presenting the NSN materials to a variety of formal and informal education audiences. To see their materials, you can get in touch with a local NSN astronomy club and participate in their events.
