I. Abstract

NASA's founding legislation, the Space Act of 1958, as amended, directs the Agency to expand human knowledge of Earth and space phenomena and to preserve the role of the United States as a leader in aeronautics, space science, and technology. The NASA Office of Education has three primary goals (1) strengthen NASA and the Nation's future workforce, (2) attract and retain students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, disciplines, and (3) engage Americans in NASA's mission. This regular clearance will enable the NASA Office of Education to fulfill federally mandated reporting on its education activities and investments portfolio as well as selected Agency annual performance indicators.

This information collection will consist of individual-level data such as user profile and program application demographic information submitted by participants in NASA project activities. Participants include educators, and secondary, undergraduate, graduate, and post- graduate students.
