systems that annually increase the number and diversity of
STEM students, teachers, faculty, and researchers from
underrepresented and underserved communities


Inspire and support underrepresented and/or
underserved communities through each sponsored
education program.


Objective 6.4: Increase student, teacher, and public
access to NASA education resources via the establishment

-
wide Strategic Roadmaps

In Fall 2004, NASA initiated a cross
-
agency planning activity involving a
large segment of the nation’s science and engineering community to
develop roadmaps for the next 30 years.

Strategic Roadmap
:


A coordinated and comprehensive longitudinal
strategy, with key achievements, options, and decision points identified,
that provides a foundation for NASA’s long
-
term priorities and
investments

13 Science roadmaps and 15 Capability Roadmaps, including a
comprehensive Education Roadmap

All these NASA roadmaps to be integrated into a unified plan

Science roadmaps have “education liaisons” identified to gather
information from the science roadmaps and inform the development of
the education roadmap (liaisons would be members of the Education
Roadmap committee)

Science Roadmap committees met from January


May

In late April, the process was sped up so that roadmap reports would
be available in late May
