Johnson Space Center, Houston
NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in conjunction with Space Center Houston, will be hosting the NASA Educator Resource Center Network Training Conference beginning today and running through Saturday, May 16.
Over 100 attendees who support the NASA Educator Resource Center Network around the country are expected to attend. They will be participating in workshops designed to train them on how to use the latest NASA educational materials. They in turn, will train educators within their respective home states on how to use NASA's educational materials to expand and enhance scientific and technological competence of their students.
Through this network, NASA provides expertise and facilities to help educators access and utilize science, mathematics, and technology instructional products aligned with national standards and appropriate state frameworks and based on the agency’s unique mission and results.
Educator Resource Centers who make up the network, are located on or near NASA Field Centers as well as at planetariums, museums, colleges, universities, and other nonprofit organizations around the United States. A listing of NASA’s Educator Resouce Centers may be found on NASA’s Education website at http://www.hq.nasa.gov/education
JSC’s Educator Resource Center is operated cooperatively with Space Center Houston and is located in the Space Center Houston facility. For more information about JSC’s Educator Resource Center, call 281-244-2129.
