The unique mission of the Space Science Institute (SSI) is to integrate scientific research with education and public outreach. Our research program includes earth science, space physics, planetary science, and astrophysics. SSIís National Center for Interactive Learning (NCIL) develops science and technology exhibits for museums, science centers, and libraries; develops educational websites and software interactives; provides professional development for formal and informal educators; and conducts learning research and evaluation for the education community. NCIL programs are aligned with the national education standards in science, math, and technology.

The National Science Foundation’s Division of Informal Science Education (ISE) promotes public interest, understanding, and engagement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through voluntary, self-directed, and lifelong learning opportunities. The ISE program supports a variety of projects, including:
• Television programs, films, and radio shows
• Exhibits and educational programs at museums, science and technology centers, aquaria, nature centers, zoos, and libraries
• Educational programs and activities through community and youth-based programs
