OM celebrates our relationship with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observatory because it symbolizes not only excellence in research and technical innovation, but the power of team-based creative problem-solving and thinking beyond the box. NASA consistently proves that applied creativity can benefit civilization.
NASA Earth Observatory’s primary mission is educational: “to share with the public the images, stories, and discoveries about climate and the environment that emerge from NASA research, including its satellite missions, in-the-field research, and climate models.” NASA has supported Odyssey of the Mind’s mission for more than a decade because our objectives overlap with respect to promoting STEM education and working to inspire innovation across the curriculum. NASA Earth Observatory provides Odyssey of the Mind participants from every corner of our planet access to invaluable educational resources through its own an exceptional Earth Science Systems educational programs, as well as special divergent problems and Odyssey of the Mind curriculum materials. Together, we create opportunities for everyone to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
