Pre-Service Teacher Institute at NASA's Kennedy Space Center

NASA's Kennedy Space Center has partnered with Oklahoma State University to offer a 10-day Pre-Service Teacher Institute taking place May 28-June 7, 2013, in Florida. The Pre-Service Teacher Institute is for college students who are preparing to teach elementary or secondary science.

The institute will focus on inquiry-based learning and the incorporation of technology into curriculum. Education specialists from the Kennedy Space Center Educator Resource Center will provide participants with training to inspire student learning of science content through the use of education resources based on NASA missions of research and discovery. Participants will work in small groups to develop lesson plans using NASA educational resources and present these activities to local elementary level students.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years old. Lodging and a stipend, as well as transportation for participants who live outside of Florida, will be provided.

Applications are due March 15, 2013.
