NASA’s Middle School Aerospace Scholars Partnering with Texas Space Grant Consortium
LiftOff 2013: Rockets to Robots
This year NASA Johnson Space Center and Texas Space Grant Consortium are collaborating to offer Texas middle school educators the opportunity to participate in Liftoff 2013. Teacher participants will be provided with information and experiences through speakers, hands-on activities and field investigations that promote space science and enrichment activities for themselves and their students.
Beginning in the summer of 1990, the NASA's Texas Space Grant Consortium initiated weeklong professional development training for teachers. This aerospace workshop, called LiftOff, emphasizes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning experiences by incorporating a space science theme supported by NASA missions.
