I. Abstract

NASA's Science Engineering Mathematics and Aerospace Academy (SEMAA) is a national education project, which works with K-12 students and their families, that employs hands-on, inquiry-based activities and emphasizes the benefits of STEM literacy. This data collection will help to assess SEMAA project effectiveness and to provide data that can inform decisions made by NASA leadership and local sites about project modifications and implementation.

II. Method of Collection

NASA will utilize a Web-based application form with instructions and other application materials also on-line. All data will be collected via this Web-Start Printed Page 63212based application (separate under graduate and graduate forms) and unless the user chooses to download the application form and other application materials and mail them in.

Data will be collected by means of a telephone survey with site directors and via paper surveys from applicants and participants and their parents.
