Outreach & Education
At NASA's Langley Research Center, Crewestone provides experienced management, administrative services, audio visual and multimedia support, program analysis and supervision of undergraduate student programs.
Our team is committed to providing the very highest level of service to our government customers and the successful administration and management of the NASA CLASIC Contract is a shining example. For ten years, Crewestone has not only met contract requirements, but we have exceeded all expectations. We strive to develop and initiate innovative products and procedures, all while maintaining a proven record of excellent service delivery and customer satisfaction.
Over the years, Crewestone has been recognized by NASA for saving the agency more than 2 million dollars by increasing efficiencies, multitasking and eliminating redundancies.
Crewestone is proud to have produced the Emmy Award winning programs, 'NASA Connect' and 'NASA SCIence Files'. Broadcast across the country on NASA TV and PBS, these shows have received many national and international accolades for providing educational enrichment in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math.
In 2004, Crewestone was honored to be named NASA's 'Minority Contractor of the Year' and members of our NASA Langley video production staff took home the coveted 'NASA Videographer of the Year' award in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2010.
We continue to receive consistent positive feedback from NASA civil service employees, contractors and student interns regarding our efficiency, commitment to quality, professionalism, attention to detail, and overall customer service.
Notable Crewestone-Produced NASA Outreach Programs
The award winning "NASA CONNECT" is a series of integrated math, science and technology programs aimed at students in grades 6-8. Each program has three components:
- a 30-minute television broadcast that can be viewed live or taped for later use,
- an educator's guide describing related hands-on activities, and
- interactive web activities that provide teachers an opportunity to use technology in a classroom setting.
These three components - television broadcast, educator's guide, and web activities - are designed as an integrated instructional package.
The "NASA SCIence FILES" is another award winning series of instructional programs consisting of broadcast, print, and online elements. With an emphasis on standards-based instruction, Problem-Based Learning, and science as inquiry, the series seeks to encourage and motivate students in grades 3-5 to become critical thinkers and active problem solvers. Each program in the series supports the national mathematics, science, and technology standards.
NASA'S "KIDS SCIENCE NEWS NETWORK" ("KSNN") is a standards-based program that uses animated characters (grades K-2), web and video technology (grades 3-5) to explain everyday phenomena of our world, correct misconceptions, and answer frequently asked questions.
"NASA EDGE" is different! Unscripted and unpredictable, the "NASA EDGE" vodcast takes a unique, sometimes whimsical, but always informative look in and around the greatest space program on the planet.
"The Sun-Earth Connection" was produced for NASA's Exploration Directorate in association with the University of California, Berkeley. These 10 to 14 minute educational webcasts were produced in support of NASA's Sun-Earth Day 2007.
"Our World" is a series of video programs designed to encourage elementary students in grades K-5 to learn more about their world through NASA's lens. These programs compare the natural world with the designed world, supplementing existing elementary learning objectives not only in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, but also in reading, writing, and visual and performing arts.
The "Real World" video series motivates middle school students (grades 6-8) to explore mathematics in action. These video segments connect classroom mathematics to 21st century careers and innovations. Learning experiences are aligned with middle school standards of learning, and are designed to help students develop an appreciation for math through real-world problem solving.
