The education and public outreach activities being developed by the the SETI Institute and the ASP include programs for K-12 teachers, informal educators, college teachers, journalists, and the general public. Approximately 200 educators per year will have the opportunity to fly aboard SOFIA, interacting with working astronomers and seeing the process of scientific research close up. Other education programs to be implemented after SOFIA operations begin include teacher/astronomer educational partnerships, classroom activities, interactive web-based activities, and live webcasts.
