The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) (opens in new tab)  highlights free NASA resources on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. 

For nearly a decade, ISTE has collaborated with NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission,  (opens in new tab)which provides educators with resources to engage students in ISTE Standards-ready research and engineering-design activities. 

At ISTE19 in Philadelphia, nearly 20,000 members took part in a NASA Playground  (opens in new tab)that featured the planetarium show “Apollo and Beyond: Conquering Gravity.” NASA personnel gave presentations and answered questions at six stations covering virtual and augmented reality, digital learning environments, digital fabrication and design (3D printing and 2D modeling), mobile sensors in smartphones, coding and electronics, and assistive technologies with Eclipse Soundscapes.  

ISTE’s materials include NASA resources (opens in new tab)ISTE’s NASA resource poster  (opens in new tab)and a series of blog posts about NASA’s citizen science lessons (opens in new tab). Educators can also connect with Apollo 50th Anniversary STEM content (opens in new tab)
