"NASA's education program strives to "inspire and motivate students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics" by supporting education in the Nation's schools and to "engage the public in shaping and sharing the experience of exploration and discovery" by supporting informal education and public outreach efforts. NASA's commitment to education places special emphasis on these goals by increasing elementary and secondary education participation in NASA projects; enhancing higher education capability in STEM disciplines; increasing participation by underrepresented and underserved communities; expanding e-Education; and expanding NASA's participation with the informal education community."
"Annenberg Learner uses media and telecommunications to advance excellent teaching in American schools. This mandate is carried out chiefly by the funding and broad distribution of educational video programs with coordinated Web and print materials for the professional development of K-12 teachers."

"The ChemCollective is a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, tutorials, and concept tests. Teachers can use our content for pre-labs, for alternatives to textbook homework, and for in-class activities for individuals or teams. Students can review and learn chemistry concepts using our virtual labs, simulations, and tutorials."
Topics: Stoichiometry -- Thermochemistry -- Kinetics -- Equilibrium -- Acid-Base Chemistry -- Solubility -- Oxidation/Reduction & Electrochemistry -- Analytical Chemistry/Lab Techniques -- Physical Chemistry -- Properties of Solutions
- ChemPRIME (Chemical Principles through Integrated Multiple Exemplars) is designed so that chemistry concepts can be presented in an order that reflects the conceptual structure of the discipline and students are able to learn chemistry within a broad range of contexts that relate chemistry to other disciplines and everyday life.
- Models 360 enables users to investigate a collection of 3-D interactive models of organic and inorganic compounds, including extended-structure solids.
- Periodic Table Live! allows you to explore a broad range of information about the elements, their reactions, their properties, their structures, and their histories.
- Biographies of Chemists
- Living Textbooks are online textbooks which cover a variety of topics including general and physical chemistry.
"Chemistry help is available here for high school or college students. Chemtutor begins with the fundamentals and gives expert help with the most difficult phases of understanding your first course in chemistry. Chemtutor is not necessarily a complete text for your course or a complete outline, but we are proud to offer some insightful help in the parts of primary chemistry that have been, from our experience, the hardest for students to grasp. Chemtutor can be a part of a course of study for independent students, a resource for chemistry teachers, a review, or a tutoring program for students taking high school or basic college chemistry. Chemtutor provides no personal or online tutoring."
