New NASA Website Aims to Engage and Educate Advanced High School Students

Advanced students require challenging materials to keep them focused on their studies and to help provide them insight into the limitless array of options in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, fields.

NASA’s Math and Science @ Work project offers challenging supplemental problems based on space exploration topics. This project engages students by providing real-world applications to promote critical thinking and problem-solving while exposing students to careers in space exploration.

These problems are for high school students in advanced classes, grades 10-12, and are formatted in a free-response style. Problems are available for calculus, physics, biology, chemistry, U.S. history and human geography.
