NASA and the National Institute of Aerospace are sponsoring an exciting two-week institute for university students enrolled in an education program who plan to teach in elementary schools. We are trying to reach underrepresented students for this program and would like your assistance to disseminate information about this opportunity.
The NASA Pre-Service Teacher Institute is a weekday program from July 22- August 2, 2013 held in Hampton, Virginia. Students who participate will be paid a stipend for attending. Experienced, award-winning teachers will share best practices in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. Our participants will have opportunities to interact with NASA scientists and engineers, making real world connections to classroom content, and will walk away with a multitude of free resources that can be used to engage students in their own classrooms.
Selected students must have transportation to and from the National Institute of Aerospace each day and must provide their own lodging.
Please PSTI Student Flyer 2013 that explains the program.
Applications are available online at: http://www.nianet.org/pstsp.
