NASA Dryden Offers Two Science Workshop for Educators

PALMDALE – Educators are invited to participate in two science workshops offered in mid-April by the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center's Office of Education. Both workshops are offered free of charge.

The first workshop, Mars Uncovered, will enable teachers to learn more about Mars and its geology. Topics to be discussed include the planet's formation, the rocks found on Mars and its volcanoes.

    Who: Educators in grades 4 – 9
    When: Saturday, April 18, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

    What: Informative presentation about Mars and its geological evolution
    Registration: Tibi Marin, AESP, at 661-276-3501 or carlota.marin@nasa.gov

The second workshop will focus on rocketry. A NASA teachers' guide to rocketry will be the template for workshop instruction. Activities will emphasize prediction, data collection and interpretation, teamwork and problem solving. The workshop will suggest the use of inexpensive materials that will incorporate science, mathematics and technology education skills into a rocketry curriculum.
