NASA educational materials are available on the new Howtosmile.org website. Launched by the University of California, Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, the Howtosmile.org website is an online collection of thousands of hands-on interactive science and math activities dedicated to making learning exciting and engaging for everyone. All activities at http://www.howtosmile.org are freely accessible and never require a registration or subscription.
Howtosmile.org brings together a consortium of science museums across the country to empower educators working with school-aged children in science, mathematics, engineering and technology. The website provides a digital infrastructure to allow informal science institutions to broaden their reach to informal educators across the U.S.
Howtosmile.org spotlights hands-on and interactive activities, both physical and virtual, that involve doing and learning. Activities take many forms, from downloadable lesson plans to field trip activities, how-to videos and online interactive games.
Howtosmile.org is funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the National Science Digital Library. The website is a joint project of UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, the Exploratorium, the New York Hall of Science, Science Museum of Minnesota, Children’s Museum of Houston, and the Association of Science-Technology Centers.
