Through problem-based learning and hands-on activities or engineering design challenges, students assume the role of NASA researchers to help mitigate the risks faced by humans in long-duration spaceflights. Students explore the top five hazards to crew during human spaceflight in order to frame an understanding of how each risk is dangerous and how the effects are compounded when multiple risks are present. https://www.nasa.gov/stem-ed-resources/hazards-to-deep-space-astronauts.html
Embark on an adventure with Callie Rodriguez, the star of NASA's first digital, interactive graphic novel. Inspire the next generation of explorers — the Artemis Generation — with her adventures as the first woman to explore the Moon.
Download, read and interact with “First Woman,” or listen to the audio version on NASA’s SoundCloud.
No matter your background, NASA invites YOU to participate in this year’s Artemis Student Challenges. These unique opportunities for high school and college students build foundational knowledge on technical topics and provide hands-on research design activities that directly contribute to the Artemis mission. Challenges are open in the Fall for registration and/or proposals.

Learn how engineers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center partner with college students from across the country to develop next generation technology. NASA Spacesuit User Interface Technologies for Students (SUITS) challenges students to develop cutting edge display and control solutions within augmented reality environments for use on the lunar surface. SUITS is one way the Artemis generation is contributing to space exploration.

The Safe Landing on the Lunar Surface demonstration video shows students how to design and build a model of a lunar lander that will use the thrust of balloons to slow its rate of descent.
It is one of the activities found in the Landing Humans on the Moon educator guide. Students will be assigned a landing site on the South Pole of the Moon using NASA topographic maps and data. They will engage in a Moon survival scenario, prioritize items for a Moon mission, and describe how to optimize a packing solution for all supplies.
We’re in a new age of learning. Keeping students engaged and inspired has never been more crucial. That’s where the power of space exploration takes over.
The Aldrin Family Foundation and NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement invite you to watch a unique fireside chat. Three accomplished female astronauts share their inspirational stories of how education and historic space milestones played a role in their career decisions.
NASA is committed to landing American astronauts, including the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon under the Artemis program. Through the agency’s Artemis lunar exploration program, we will use innovative new technologies and systems to explore more of the Moon than ever before.
The Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft are designed to send humans to deeep space as the backbone for America’s Moon to Mars exploration approach.
