Below you will find access to everything from formal lesson plans to amazing imagery and stories about how science and exploration are lifting our world. There will also be ongoing opportunities to chat and interact with scientists directly. We know there’s a community of space science enthusiasts worldwide, and we want to provide a place to connect and to share the discoveries that continue to unfold.
Planet Four is a citizen science project designed to help planetary scientists identify and measure features on the surface of Mars . . . the likes of which don’t exist on Earth. All of the images on this site depict the southern polar region, an area of Mars that we know little about, and the majority of which have never been seen by human eyes before!
This website provides students of history with an opportunity to explore primary sources, whilst contributing to their preservation and study. It will also allow African American genealogists to link descendants to the soldiers and through them to earlier ancestors. The transcription process allows users to leave comments, raising awareness of individual soldier’s stories and the challenges they faced in a white-dominated Army.
