NASA's founding legislation, the Space Act of 1958, as amended, directs the agency to expand human knowledge of Earth and space phenomena and to preserve the role of the United States as a leader in aeronautics, space science, and technology. The NASA Office of Education has three primary goals: (1) Strengthen NASA and the Nation's future workforce, (2) attract and retain students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, disciplines, and (3) engage Americans in NASA's mission. This notice informs the public of NASA's intent to review and revise the currently approved information collection for STEM Challenge project activities. The request for emergency renewal pertains to the administration of surveys to youth in support of the agency's STEM challenge activities for youth. The information collection was previously revised to collect the minimum amount of data required to (1) evaluate the activity for improvement opportunities, and (2) collect outcome data to assess the activity model's effectiveness in meeting its intended objectives. The number of youth participating in this information collection were previously reduced to reflect the estimated number of participants who will be engaged in this activity in the future. The cost of the information collection, to participating members of the public, reflects a previous reduction as a result of the changes to the information collection described above.
