SEGway Lessons Available Here.
SEGway develops educational resources through several NASA-supported projects. These resources range from web-based lessons to hands-on, inquiry based-lessons for grades K-12. All resources are developed to align with the National Science Education Standards and Project 2061 Benchmarks for Science Literacy.

SEGway Lessons: These lessons were designed by both teachers and scientists. Here you will find lessons organized by grade level and topic. Topics are varied throughout all Earth and Space Science. Each lesson has a summary with a brief overview of the lesson, its teaching goals, and alignment to standards.

National Science Education Standards: Educational standards, developed by the National Research Council, that include standards in science content, teaching strategies, professional development, and policies needed to bring coordination, consistency, and coherence to science education programs.

Benchmarks for Science Literacy: The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) founded Project 2061 to help all Americans become literate in science, mathematics, and technology. Benchmarks was developed by Project 2061 and specifies how students should progress toward science literacy, recommending what they should know and be able to do by the time they reach certain grade levels.

Principles & Standards for School Mathematics: Developed to be a single resource that can be used to improve mathematics curricula, teaching, and assessment by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
