Twenty-five teachers from 10 states are attending a NASA Educational Workshop taking place July 8 through July 20 at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif. The teachers were selected for the workshop through a national competition among elementary teachers in the United States.

NASA Educational Workshops provide an opportunity for kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers to enhance their background and skills in mathematics, science and technology. The educators observe NASA Dryden’s aeronautical and earth science research through direct interaction with pilots, scientists, engineers and educational specialists. Activities, including tours of aircraft and project briefings, are incorporated into the workshop to help teachers adapt new information, experiences and materials into their specific educational situations.

The educators examine topics related to the five NASA Enterprises: Aerospace Technology, Space Science, Earth Science, Human Exploration and Development of Space, and Biological and Physical Research. The workshop focuses on NASA Dryden’s mission of aerospace flight research and how it may be used as a context for developing a thematic approach to teaching mathematics, science, technology and geography.


Note to Editors: Photo opportunities include the teachers performing hands-on aerospace experiments.
