We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
DIY Solar System makes it easy for families and educators to explore the solar system from anywhere, anytime! The app includes 11 science activities to learn about space travel, living in space, and the unique objects that make up the planetary system we call home. In these activities you can design a Moon base, grow your own space garden, or experience what it’s like to control a rover on Mars—all with step-by-step instructions and using low-cost materials. After sizing up your spacesuit, set off on a planet walk in augmented reality by dropping a scale version of the solar system outside your home—or take a space selfie with your favorite planet. And finally, scan awe-inspiring images of space objects from NASA’s Earth and space observatories in a fast-paced game to discover what is in or out of our solar system. This free app for iPhones and iPads is your ticket to all of these space adventures and much more!
