NEW ORLEANS -- Five Louisiana teachers were recognized July 25 for their participation in the LaSpace/NASA Michoud Education Fellow Program at the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans. For the 2008-2009 school year, these teachers are being paired for three, two-week sessions with department heads, engineers, chemists and welders at Michoud to learn first hand about science and technology careers available to their students in their own backyard of New Orleans. The teachers teach earth science, physics and physical science to students in eighth through 12th grade and will take their experiences back to the classroom, reaching over 700 students. This pilot program is a partnership between the state of Louisiana, Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and NASA.
