NASA's Summer of Innovation

The kickoff for NASA's Summer of Innovation was last week. This is a national program to reach out to middle school teachers and students in order to encourage state-based STEM learning networks and to prevent the loss of skills acquired during the school year. More information is available here: http://www.nasa.gov/soi An excellent way to become involved in the Summer of Innovation is to contact your AESP Project Coordinator. AESP has been involved in professional development and in-class programming for 47 YEARS! http://aesp.psu.edu/ When you reach the main page, links can take your directly to an online form or to the Project Coordinator for Kentucky. Kentucky educators are included in the East Region and our coordinator is Gwen Wheatle at NASA Langley Research Center. Would you like to be able to borrow samples of lunar rocks brought back by Apollo astronauts? There is a PD for that. While the Summer of Innovation has its focus on the middle school students, AESP Representatives are independent of this program and can be requested by ANY grade level teacher. They can even present to educators from entire districts; so please do not hesitate to request a visit when you or any of your colleagues want to enhance your STEM curriculum with NASA programs on Space or Earth Science.
