NASA’s Science Mission Directorate has launched Mission:Science, a new Web site created specifically for teenagers. Through Mission:Science, teens can access current NASA spacecraft data for school science projects, conduct real experiments with NASA scientists and locate space-related summer internships.
Mission:Science showcases NASA’s educational science resources and encourages students to study and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. While NASA provides a vast amount of online STEM information for students of all ages, Mission:Science boosts the content available for this age group.
The site also features social networking tools, links to enter science contests or participate in a family science night, information about college research programs, and an array of NASA images, animation, videos and podcasts. Visit Mission:Science at http://missionscience.nasa.gov
