our Partnerships

NESTA collaborates w/ professional education associations, scientific societies & federal agencies to promote/advocate for ESS education
We gratefully acknowledge & appreciate the long-term support from our partner organizations.


American Geophysical Union (AGU) nonprofit scientific association of Earth, atmospheric, ocean, hydrologic, space & planetary scientists— organization/disseminate scientific information within ESS

American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is a nonprofit federation of approx 50 geoscientific & professional organizations representing geologists, geophysicists, & other Earth scientists

The AMS is a global community committed to advancing weather, water, & climate science—advance atmospheric & related sciences, technologies, applications & services for the benefit of society

HHMI science philanthropy—advance basic biomedical research & science education for benefit of humanity—four guiding priorities: Discovery Science; Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Scientific Workforce; Public Engagement; & Healthy Academic Ecosystem

IRIS is a consortium of over 120 US universities dedicated to the operation of science facilities for the acquisition, management & distribution of seismological data

Michigan Earth Science Teachers Association is the first national ESTA, also aiding in the founding of NESTA.  MESTA aides in the advancement, stimulation, extension, improvement, and coordination of Earth and Space Science education at all educational levels 

National  Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) fosters improvement in teaching Earth sciences at all levels of formal & informal instruction, to emphasize cultural significance of ES, & disseminate knowledge to the general public 

National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), focuses on conditions of oceans, major waterways, & atmosphere NOAA warns of dangerous weather, charts seas, guides use & protection of ocean / coastal resources & conducts research to provide understanding &improve stewardship of the environment








State ESTAs

NESTA believes a strong network of State ESTA's are essential to effectively serving the K-12 ESS educator community

Coordinating ESS presence at 50 State conferences is simply not practical for a National organization—any more practical to expect each State ESTA to have liaisons to National sister organizations—NAGT, GSA, AGU, AGI, NSTA

We must band together to ensure challenges facing ESS educational community are met
