Pre-Service Teacher Institute at NASA’s Stennis Space Center

NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center has partnered with Jackson State University to offer a two-week Pre-Service Teacher Institute taking place July 14-26, 2013, in Jackson, Miss. The Pre-Service Teacher Institute is for college students who are preparing to teach middle school grades.

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 aerospace theme. Each student is assigned to an Institute Flight Team. Students develop a lesson plan that they will teach to children from a local school.

Applications are due April 5, 2013.

Applicants must attend a designated member institution. For more information and a list of eligible institutions, visit http://education.ssc.nasa.gov/psti/psti.asp.
