The Oklahoma NASA Space Grant Consortium is sponsoring a summer institute for NASA’s Space Science Mission Directorate. We call this Mission to Planet Earth (MTPE). Use the excitement of Aerospace Education to motivate students with a research-based, hands-on curriculum across all subject areas. Enhance your teaching by aligning these motivational activities with the National Standards and the Oklahoma PASS.
Pre-service and in-service classroom teachers in any subject area whom teach Grades 2nd – 8th can apply to this 10 day teacher institute, June 2nd – 12th, 2010 at the University of Oklahoma.
Selected participants will receive NASA funding that covers the cost of: ten nights lodging, meals for eleven days, morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, handout materials, curriculum notebooks, “mini ground school”, orientation flight in University owned aircraft, flight materials and logbook, and model rocket projects. There will be a $250 stipend to all participants!!!
