NASA Launches New Aeronautics Education Project

Cleveland, OH -- NASA's Lewis Research Center will be a host site to a public briefing Monday, December 19 on a new three-year project called "Education, Training and Lifelong Learning in Aeronautics." Funded by NASA's Office of Aeronautics, Washington, DC, the $7.5 million cooperative agreement notice is seeking project proposals that will develop lesson plans based on aeronautical topics to effectively teach science, math, or engineering while imaginatively using the Internet. The project is aimed at students in kindergarten through junior college or vocational school.

The project solicitation is open to public, private and non-profit organizations in education, industry and government. Proposals are encouraged from small, disadvantaged or woman-owned businesses, institutions and schools serving minority or disadvantaged students. All proposals require the active participation of teachers and students and must provide at least 30 percent of the project's resources, including direct costs or in-kind contributions.

The three-hour briefing, which will run from noon to 3 p.m. EST,will be broadcast live from NASA Ames Research Center, Mountain View, Calif., to NASA's Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio; Langley Research Center, Hampton, Va; and Dryden Flight Research Facility, Edwards, Calif., for public viewing. A one-hour question and answer session will follow the briefing at 4 p.m.

For further information, contact Greg Follen, software manager for the Inter-disciplinary Technology Office, NASA Lewis Research Center, telephone 216/433-5193.

Since space is limited, those interested in attending should contact the NASA Lewis Teacher Resource Center at 433-2017 or 433-5112 to make a reservation.
