Gold Star Winners in NASA's Top Stars Contest
Fourteen educators claimed "Gold Star" honors in the NASA-sponsored Top Stars contest, which invited U.S. formal and informal educators to submit their best examples of using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in science, technology, engineering or mathematics education.
The Top Stars contest was conducted by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies in cooperation with the Space Telescope Science Institute. Submissions were accepted from individuals and from teams of up to four members. Entries included any combination of text, graphics, video and photos.
Gold Star status was awarded to the best of the best -- as judged by IGES and NASA scientists and educators -- from the entries selected as "Top Stars" during the contest's four rounds of competition. The Showcase section of the Top Stars website -- http://topstars.strategies.org
-- includes downloadable materials from all Hubble activities selected as Top Stars.
