For Educators

You can use this resource to help supplement your instruction on concepts related to astronomy and space science. The information about the astronauts could be used to encourage your students to consider careers in the space sciences. You can use the interactive activities to help reinforce some of the science concepts you are teaching in school. For instance, you could use the Go to the Head of the Solar System interactive at the end of a unit on the solar system to test students' understanding about what they have learned.
