EarthSpace is a searchable database of undergraduate classroom materials for faculty teaching planetary sciences and solar and space physics at both the introductory and upper division levels. Modeled after the highly successful SERC clearinghouse for geosciences assets, EarthSpace was designed for easy submission of classroom assets, and all materials are peer-reviewed. EarthSpace materials are automatically cross-posted to other digital libraries (e.g., ComPADRE) and virtual higher education communities (e.g., Connexions).
In addition to classroom materials, EarthSpace provides news and information about educational research and best practices, funding opportunities, and ongoing efforts and collaborations for undergraduate education.
EarthSpace is supported by the NASA Science Mission Directorate Education and Public Outreach Forums in Heliophysics and Planetary Science and is housed at the Lunar and Planetary Institute.
