Star Gazers website was created to combine
the Education and Public Outreach (EPO)
efforts of the Solar Terrestrial Probes
(STP) and Living With a Star (LWS) programs
at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
The goals for the site are to inspire learning,
provide resources to educators, and to
excite the public about our Sun-Earth environment.
