Albany State University
Headquartered on the campus of Albany State University, this NASA Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Aerospace Academy project site serves all of Southwest Georgia, the Florida Panhandle and Southeastern Alabama. NASA SEMAA classes are taught by certified K-12 teachers using curriculum enhancement activities developed by NASA. The Albany State University SEMAA project site inspires and engages students through a series of hands-on, inquiry-based activities and through exposure to cutting-edge technologies. In addition to program operations on campus, during the academic year this NASA SEMAA Project site operates as an in-school model at West Town Elementary, Southside Middle and Monroe Pre‐Engineering High School. The Project also offers classes for 6th- and 7th-grade students on the Albany State University campus.
The SEMAA project is open to students in grades K‐10 at the participating schools. During the summer the project is open to the general public for four, one‐week sessions. The project will continue to expand to more area schools and will eventually include all grades. All participants have an opportunity to visit the NASA SEMAA Aerospace Education Laboratory, or AEL, at Albany State University. The AEL consists of ten computerized research stations that provide NASA SEMAA students and the general public with real-life aerospace challenges involving science, engineering, mathematics and NASA technology. Additionally, the AEL is a local resource that enables the surrounding school systems to develop and enhance hands-on learning techniques and concepts.
All NASA SEMAA professional development activities are open to administrators, educators, counselors, engineering students, teachers, university faculty, pre-college students, parents and other members of the surrounding communities. All materials and instruction are provided free of charge to registered NASA SEMAA project participants.
