Educator Professional Development

Teachers play a critical role in inspiring, enabling and propelling humanity by making a powerful impact on students.

We believe that investing in teachers significantly increases student achievement and opportunities for success in all areas. We also recognize that teachers face many challenges in developing lesson plans that engage students, meet standards, support classroom, school, district, state and national objectives and are fun and rewarding to deliver. This is why we place a great deal of focus on delivering professional development to educators and pre-service teachers with programs that meet education standards by integrating space-based science, technology, engineering and mathematics (S-STEM) into daily curriculum. Our courses provide tools that are instantly transferrable to the classroom and our Teacher Liaison program link educators together for networking, support and exchange.
