NASA Ames And NASA HQ STEM Ignore Each Other

NASA Lands in Oakland! New Partnership with Chabot Space & Science Center Will Create NASA Learning Opportunities in the East Bay, NASA Ames

"A new partnership between NASA's Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley and Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California, is now underway. Anchoring the partnership, a new visitor center for Ames will provide an immersive, dynamic STEAM environment called "The NASA Experience," opening at Chabot in November 2021. Under the terms of a five-year Space Act Agreement, the organizations are beginning a long-term collaboration to create accessible STEAM, or science, technology, engineering, art, and math, community engagement and education opportunities in Oakland and beyond."

Keith's note: A new STEM education activity at NASA Ames has been announced at - and by - NASA Ames. Typically, there is no mention of this NASA STEM education news by @NASASTEM Twitter account. There is no link within the NASA Ames press release of the NASA STEM Engagement Office at NASA HQ - which, in turn, makes no mention of this new NASA STEM educational partnership at NASA Ames.

No one within the NASA education community seems to want to cooperate with any other part of NASA and the NASA STEM Office at NASA HQ - the place where you'd expect some sort of central focus on all that NASA does in terms of education, seems to be out of the loop. And NASA Public Affairs does not seem to care either.

This is not #BuildBackBetter folks.
