Education and Public Outreach

ADNET is a strong believer that an educated and aware public is the best guarantee of continued support for science, at NASA and every other agency. Our goals are to maximize the number of people who know of our customers’ work; to communicate the significance of that work as effectively as possible; and to help inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. Our aggressive efforts reach every educational level, from elementary school through postgraduates, and with every medium, from family participation events, through webcasts, brochures, traveling shows, brochures, and DVDs. Our activities include:

  • Leading NASA GSFC social media development; held first-ever launch “Tweet-up” via Twitter; developed popular iPhone app 3-D Sun
  • Family Science Night programs
  • Development and support of the NASA outreach for the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival on the National Mall
  • The Solar Dynamics Observatory Sunday Experiment Program
  • A YouTube channel for solar astronomy that has garnered 500,000+ hits
