scienceScience Teacher Opportunity - Space Academy

Throughout the week of Educators @ Space Academy, participants engage in a wide variety of activities that use space to meet math, and science objectives. All activities are correlated to National Science, Math and Reading Standards.


During the program, educators participate in a variety of activities including 45 hours of classroom, laboratory, and field-training. Simulated astronaut training exercises, high-performance jet simulations, scenario-based space missions, and flying programs are just a small sampling of what's in the curriculum.
