NASA & the Khan Academy for STEM Education

The non-profit, educational website Khan Academy collaborates with NASA to bring a series of astronomy & space exploration tutorials to the public. The tutorials are divided into three sections with each section geared towards acquainting the learner with aspects of space & NASA's understand & exploration of them. By building an increasing interest in the solar system, NASA & the Khan Academy hope to promote STEM education, especially in young girls & women, who are frequently underrepresented in the field.

Students can choose a number of different proposed models of the solar system in this interactive tool.
