Another NASA Education Cut

CORE is Closing, NASA

Marc's note: A NASA Watch reader sent this in:

"The NASA-sponsored Central Operation of Resources for Educators (CORE) is closing. CORE has been operated through a cooperative agreement with Lorain County Joint Vocational School in Oberlin, Ohio. The cooperative agreement, which provides funding for CORE, ends on June 30, 2013. Final orders through CORE should be submitted no later than June 9, 2013."

"June 10, 2013 - The CORE website will be taken off-line and replaced with an explanatory redirection page sending visitors to the "Find Teaching Materials" Web page ( from which educators can search for electronic versions of NASA educational materials, including video clips and links to other content-rich NASA websites. We also plan to direct educators to the NASA Field Center Educator Resource Centers (ERCs) to inquire on the availability of educational materials. This explanatory redirection link will only remain active through Sept. 30, 2013. Beginning October 1, visitors will be immediately redirected to the "Find Teaching Materials" Web page.

We recommend that you remove any links to CORE ( from websites for which you have responsibility."
