NASA BEST Workshop in Montana - October 21, 2010

NASA is hosting a professional development opportunity in Missoula, Mont., on Oct. 21, 2010. This workshop is an introduction to the NASA’s Beginning Engineering, Science and Technology Students curriculum. The BEST Students curriculum is designed to teach students in grades K-8 about the engineering design process. NASA wants students to understand that one must ask questions, imagine solutions and design a plan before ever building an experiment. The hands-on activities in this guide are therefore different than others – students have no recipe to follow! Let them think outside the box when designing and building the next lunar buggy to explore the moon!

This event is open to all educators, informal and formal. To sign up for this free professional development opportunity, please contact Dr. Marci Delaney (marci.delaney@nasa.gov) or Kay Fladstol of Visionet (kay.fladstol@vision.net).
