Robots were once the stuff of science fiction and the future. Now they are everyday real science and yet still, endlessly fascinating. This fascination coupled with a curiosity of how and why robots work is a learning opportunity that can be explored across many disciplines. To tap this educational potential and share the large body of work the agency performs in robotic technology, NASA makes current events, research results, and educational activities available to the public via the Internet and Web technologies. This paper identifies some of those educational sites associated with NASA robotic development and space exploration.
