Since its inception, Science, Mathematics, Aerospace, Research, and Technology (S.M.A.R.T.), Inc. has focused its time and energy on exciting and engaging underrepresented and underserved students and families, educators, and the public about science and technology through hands-on and interactive science activities and experiences. Past activities included:

  • Experiencing a total solar eclipse, occurring in real-time in other parts of the world via a webcast
  • Learning about Earth and space science topics at Family Night Programs hosted by schools, S.M.A.R.T. Technology Learning Center, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and the Howard B. Owens Science Center


In 2011, S.M.A.R.T has implemented two Space Weather activities:

  • Informal Education – S.M.A.R.T. Space Weather program with underrespresented and underserved students in four Washington, DC metro area schools
  • Higher Education – Howard University Intermediate-level Earth and Space course that covers “Space Weather” offered to Washington, DC public school teachers and Howard University students.
