Overview | Partnerships
Club Space Place also provides help with Girl Scouting and Cub Scouting badge achievement by mapping its activities to various badge requirements on different levels. Plus, nearly 200 amateur astronomy clubs partner with The Space Place, which contributes informative, original articles to their monthly newsletters and provides space-related videos, at no charge beyond postage, through a new lending library. And, The Space Place provides a place (the many facets of Friends Share) for budding artists, future scientists and engineers, and young people with visions for the new millennium to be "seen" and "heard."
Additionally, during the school year, The Space Place contributes several articles, with classroom activities, to the International Technology Education Association's (ITEA) educator journal, The Technology Teacher.
After a period of time The Space Place articles are made available to all teachers (and everyone), as Adobe Acrobat downloadable files (.pdf), from the site's "Teacher's Corner" link. Most of these activities can be adapted for grades 4-8 and some may be of interest to grades 9-12. This link also provides printable images of space and Earth plus a downloadable file (.pdf) of links to math-related articles and activities. And, The Space Place contributes a regular column for each issue of ITEA's quarterly journal, Technology & Children. Additionally, the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) publishes a Space Place column in both English and Spanish in each of its bi-monthly journals, NABE News. Articles and activities for all three publications are developed in support of ITEA's "Standards for Technological Literacy."
Launched in 1998, this award winning site continues to develop interesting and exciting materials. All NASA missions and enterprises are invited to participate in the The Space Place outreach venture.
