Windows to the Universe Partnership Opportunities for Education and Outreach
Are you looking for an effective and efficient education and outreach program to supplement your research activities?
Are you struggling to reach a significant audience of students, teachers, and the public?
Partnership with Windows to the Universe, offered by the National Earth Science Teachers Association, provides a very effective way to reach your audience through our existing, trusted platform for Earth and space science education. With 14 million visits annually, and over 15,000 educators subscribing to our monthly e-newsletter, Windows to the Universe is one of the most popular Earth and space science education websites globally. Joining the community of geoscience organizations and scientists partnering with Windows to the Universe and NESTA provides a leg-up for your education and outreach efforts, allowing you to leverage our large and diverse audience, our large existing network of educators, and building on our extensive existing content and infrastructure to be able to actually reach your audience.
We offer a number of different opportunities for individual scientists and organizations to partner with the National Earth Science Teachers Association through Windows to the Universe on your education and outreach efforts. Options include:
Affiliate Partnerships, which provide access to a web page within Windows to the Universe that allows the organization's resources, programs and events to be promoted through the website to our large audience;
Contributing Partnerships, which allow individual scientists to add new content to the website on their field of science, updating existing website content, posting Postcards from the Field from your field expeditions to share the excitement of field research, answering Ask-a-Scientist questions, and assisting in review of submissions by others;
Institutional Partnerships, which provide the benefits of Contributing Partnerships to multiple scientists at the same institution, to share information about multiple programs at their organization;
Founding Partnerships, which provide tailored education and outreach support for a limited number of organizations through Windows to the Universe, and includes a seat on the Windows to the Universe Advisory Board.
