The Northrop Grumman Corporation Foundation is accepting teacher applications for the 2009 Weightless Flights of Discovery program, an initiative that places teachers on micro- and zero-gravity flights to test Newton’s Laws of Motion and energize students in the formative middle-school years.
The Foundation has selected four locations for this year’s flights:
• Albuquerque, NM (Sept. 22)
• Detroit, MI (Sept. 24)
• Norwalk, CT (Sept. 29)
• Washington, DC (Oct. 2)
A maximum of 30 teachers in each of the cities will participate. The deadline to apply is April 30, 2009. Middle-school math and science teachers in public schools are welcome to apply for the program at http://www.northropgrumman.com/teachers
