Space Foundation Now Accepting
Applications for Teacher Liaison
Applications are due to the Space Foundation by Feb. 24, 2006.
Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons serve as an active link between
the Space Foundation, NASA, and their school and school district.
All kindergarten through 12th grade educators, or other professionals
or informal educators who have a desire to integrate space
education into their classrooms are eligible to apply.
Teacher Liaisons receive specialized training and instruction
at Space Foundation and NASA workshops with optional graduate-level
credit; exclusive science, technology, engineering, and math
(STEM) professional development experiences with optional continuing
education credit; and attend special space-oriented student
programs created just for Teacher Liaisons and their classes.
Teacher Liaisons are recognized during the 22nd National Space
Symposium, and receive free registration to the symposium,
held April 3-6, 2006, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.
They also gain free admission to the Lockheed Martin Exhibit
Center, showcasing the latest in space technology and applications,
at the National Space Symposium.
Applications are available to download online at www.SpaceFoundation.org/education or
by contacting Jonathan Ogg, Director of Education, at (719)
