The Challenge of Discovery! Educator Workshops

You want to go where? What does it take to make a NASA mission happen, and who are the people that drive these tremendous projects?

In Discovery Program's third annual multisite professional development workshop, we delve into the stories behind some amazing NASA missions, from conception to science results. Learn how scientists, engineers and mission operators collaborate to meet the challenges of complex missions to assure the science goals are met. Investigate what it takes to move a fantastic idea from dream to reality.

The Challenge of Discovery workshop will take place on April 6, 2013, in four locations.
            -- NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
            -- NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas
            -- University of Arizona, Tucson, Ariz.
            -- Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Md.

All sites will offer special speakers, hands-on activities for K-12 and out-of-school-time educators and resource packets.

The cost of the workshop is $25. Lunch and snacks will be provided. Registration closes on April 1, 2013.
