The Stardust Education page was designed to enhance the breadth, flexibility and knowledge of science, mathematics, and technology between higher education and K-12 education, recognizing and supporting a diverse set of programs while improving scientific literacy among students.

The materials found on this homepage are aligned with the National Science Education Standards (1996) and have been designed primarily for use by Grades 5-8.
