Expedition Earth and Beyond (EEAB)
This program is designed to motivate students to gain an interest in Science, Math, Engineering, and Technology (STEM) related subjects. Stunning images of Earth, taken by astronauts in space, are the hook to help students not only want to learn about Earth processes but to provide them with the opportunity to get involved with NASA in the process of exploration, discovery, and science.
