CSR Education

Opportunities for educational activities at CSR are available for the full range of students and educators — from K-12 lesson resources and teacher training in standards-based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education to both summer and full-time, undergraduate and graduate student research.

K-12 Teachers and Students

We want to show young people a variety of ways to explore and learn about Earth and Space Science. We provide information about competitions for students, career exploration, and internships. We offer a wide range of free resources and teacher training to elementary, middle and high school teachers.
