The 2011 NASA Heliophysics Educator Ambassador Program is currently accepting applications. The program kicks off with a weeklong teacher professional development workshop July 18-22, 2011, at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, Ill.
The workshop will focus on in-depth learning experiences in Earth, space and physical science topics for educators teaching in middle school grades. The goal of this program is for participants to gain a better understanding of these content areas and develop the capacity to train other teachers on NASA Heliophysics science and educational resources. Lodging support for out-of-town participants and stipends for all participants are available.
Applications are due March 25, 2011.
