Our mission through NASA is to provide educators with free and low-cost curriculum materials and make literature connections to current children’s and young adult books. The center is located at Eastern Connecticut State University on the first floor of the J. Eugene Smith Library in the Curriculum Center. The center is open year round when the Curriculum Center is open, but it is advised to call ahead for an appointment.

The Center is a member of the Connecticut NASA Education Collaborative whose primary mission is to collaborate with school districts, (NASA’s) business partners, college and universities, informal science centers, other educational service providers, and NASA in an effort to improve science, mathematics and technology K-16 education in Connecticut. Many resources are available within the NASA Educator Resource Center, including lithographs, a limited number of posters, educational briefs, and educator guides. All materials are free and may be taken out of the center.

Serving as co-chairs of the Center’s Board of Directors are Ms. Hope-Marie Cook from the J. Eugene Smith Library at Eastern Connecticut State University, Dr. Zoran Pazameta from the Physical Science Department (Astronomy). Other board members include: Dr. Carmen Cid from the Biology Department, Dr. Max Ferguson from the Physical Sciences Department (Chemistry), Dr. David Stoloff, Education Department, and Dr. Roy Wilson from the Environmental Earth Science Department. Questions about the Connecticut NASA ERC should be directed to Hope-Marie Cook.
