The NASA Dryden Flight Research Center Pre-Service Teacher Institute (PSTI) is a two-week summer residential program for college students who are preparing to teach in elementary or middle schools. The program is designed to increase students’ skills in teaching mathematics and science, while incorporating technology in the curriculum. This is achieved through the development of a problem-based learning (PBL) aerospace theme. Each student is assigned to an Institute Flight Team. Students develop a lesson that they teach to children from a local school and will teach in an elementary or middle school when they return home. PSTI will be held August 1-12, 2011 and financial support is provided to all participants upon successful completion of all requirements of the two-week Institute.
