SSU EdEon is involved in many projects that promote the teaching and dissemination of science to schools and the general public. We support several NASA Space Science missions focused on the astrophysics of the high energy universe. In addition, we are currently developing an online college curriculum in Cosmology as well as a science/engineering curriculum for secondary students.

Our mission is to develop exciting formal and informal educational materials that inspire students in grades 5-14 to pursue STEM careers, to train teachers nation-wide in the classroom use of these materials, and to enhance science literacy for the general public, with a special focus on increasing the numbers of under-represented students in STEM.
