Digital Learning Network (DLN)

Grab your helmets and put on your spacesuits!

NASA’s Digital Learning Network (DLN) provides science, technology, engineering, and mathematics or STEM content featuring NASA’s missions and research.  The DLN includes 10 NASA field centers and has reached close to 1 million students and teachers using VC (videoconferencing) and webcasts that feature NASA-related STEM instruction. Participants can take advantage of free interactive lessons and professional development events through distance learning technologies.To learn more about the programs being offered check out NASA’s DLN Event Catalogue!

The DLN also offers Special Events – interactive activities/ web-casts that are not a part of their regular catalogue and they are usually geared towards students.  With these opportunties you and your students will be able to talk to and learn from NASA astronauts, scientists, engineers, and other NASA employees.  Be sure to check our NASA’s DLN Special Events page regularly to see what NASA has to offer!

I strongly encourage you to learn more about NASA’s DLN programs by visiting their website!  Not only will you be able to browse their Event Catalogue and Special Events pages, and watch exciting webcasts, but you will have access to educational resource packages to support your teaching of STEM content.

Keep shooting for the stars!
