When appropriate, DASEF coordinates and sponsors teacher workshops, student programs, and events for the general public with other organizations and state agencies that are aligned with the DASEF mission. These partnerships allow DASEF and the other organizations and agencies to maximize and extend the value of the educational experience for the participants.
DASEF programs teach the responsible use of technology, along with stewardship of ourplanet and its resources. We endeavor to teach children and their families the importance of using science and technology in a way that appreciates and respects the earth -- and its most valuable resource: people.

Delaware Aerospace Education
Since 1989, quality space and earth science and technology programs and
outreach activities have involved participants from Delaware’s nineteen
school districts, charter, private, parochial, and home school through various
workshops, programs and events.
The primary purpose of Delaware Aerospace Education is to communicate
This program is funded by NASA in order to train students and researchers in the state of Delaware in the areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and geography. By means of this training, the state of Delaware aims to help in contributing to the technically literate workforce which NASA will need in the years ahead.
Delaware State University
Delaware State University: Center for Applied Optics in Space Sciences –
DASEF K-12 STEM Education Outreach Partner.
CAOSS (Center for Applied Optics in Space Sciences) is a research program in the field of Optical Sciences. The program is funded by a NASA award, which began in October 2009. CAOSS is under the direction of Dr. Noureddine Melikechi who is also the Chairperson of the Department of Physics and Pre-Engineering at Delaware State University. The Centers’ research areas include Planetary Science, Space Communications & Navigation and Astrobiology.
To Promote multidisciplinary research and education in optical sciences through the pursuit of activities that yield expansion and dissemination of knowledge, foster broad participation by assisting predominantly students from underrepresented and underserved groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, enhance the national aerospace science and technology workforce, develop partnerships with the larger community and increase awareness of NASA’s mission.
K-12 Outreach: CAOSS has partnered with the Delaware Aerospace Education Foundation (DASEF), an independent non-profit educational organization that strives to raise the visibility and importance of K-12 (STEM) education to meet the intellectual and workplace needs of future generations. CAOSS will serve as the focal point for site visits to NASA Centers, which are conveniently located close to DSU. CAOSS offers an 8-10 week summer program for high school students interested in STEM careers.
