NASA SMD ROSES–2021, F.6 Science Activation Program Integration

The Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Science Activation Program seeks to enable NASA science experts and content into the learning environment more effectively and efficiently with learners of all ages. Specific focus areas for this opportunity include:

  • Heliophysics content, including the upcoming annular (2023) and total (2024) solar eclipses
  • Dissemination of SMD assets (science content and data, space and airborne platforms, and scientific and technical personnel) into communities or specific audience networks
  • Integration of data into science learning, in alignment with the SMD Strategy for Data Management and Computing for Groundbreaking Science and the NASA Science Data Overview

Proposals are due May 14, 2021. For more information, visit
