NASA’s Office of Education is seeking proposals for collaboration with an organization to enhance NASA’s ability to achieve its educational goals by creating and managing a Massively Multiplayer Online game. The goal of this game is to enhance science, technology, engineering and mathematics education by combining NASA-based content that draws and holds young people’s attention with fun and challenging game play. The primary audience for this MMO game will be students from the middle school level through college.
This request will result in the establishment of a non-reimbursable Space Act Agreement (defined as one with no exchange of funds) that will define the full roles and responsibilities of NASA and the proposing organization. A follow on call for education experts to work with the project is expected in June 2008. Proposals are due June 18, 2008.
