Space Across the Curriculum Concludes in Colorado Springs with Astronomy Course
This week, the Space Foundation will conclude the Colorado Springs portion of its summer Space Across the Curriculum teacher professional development courses with the final course - Astronomy Principles for the Classroom: Kinesthetic Astronomy, held at the Space Foundation Discovery Institute, 105 Coleridge Ave. The course provides educators with ideas for exciting new ways to bring the universe into the classroom.
Space Across the Curriculum courses are intensive week-long graduate-level courses for pre-k - 12 educators provide space-related science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) content that is instantly transferable to the classroom. All courses are hands-on and focus on national standards and STEM principles. Although the underlying concentration is on STEM, the courses are structured to adapt lessons to all grade levels and all curriculum areas.
Later this month, through a contract agreement, the Space Foundation will offer Space Across the Curriculum courses for educators in Charles County (Md.) Public Schools.
