With total eclipse on the horizon, might be a good time to start running this NASA series

NASA Space Place is a premier science communications website that engages upper-elementary-aged children in space and Earth science.

As a complement to our website, we produce a free, monthly column which is currently used in a number of newspapers across the country.  We were hoping that your state press association might be able to let your member papers know about this column.

Below is an announcement that you could use in your communications with your member papers.  Please feel free to use it as is or to modify it as you see fit.

Thanks so much for helping us get the word out!

Nancy Leon, Program Manager, Nancy.J.Leon@jpl.nasa.gov

The NASA Space Place website team produces a free, monthly column that you may want to include in your newspaper and/or on your NIE page.  The 400 word column (and accompanying image) is geared at upper elementary school age readers.  The column deals with a space or Earth science topic – and NASA’s connection to that topic.  It is e-mailed to participating editors on the 12th of each month.

If you would like to see a sample column – or if you have questions about this program, please feel free to contact  nancy.j.leon@jpl.nasa.gov.
