Kennedy Professional Development Workshops
Kennedy's Education Office sponsors professional development workshops through the NASA Educator Resource Center. These workshops provide aerospace education programs and activities for elementary and secondary teachers. These workshops meet national curriculum standards associated with math, science, and technology, as well as correlate to the Sunshine State Standards. While supporting national education goals and existing standards for science, mathematics and technology education, these programs reflect NASA's mission requirements. One-day to two-week workshops are provided upon request for local, national and international groups of educators with activities and lessons focusing on the application of mathematics, science, engineering and technology in student learning.
