Education Brochures Available

Written by: developer

 Two new brochures are now available for educators describing Space Foundation education programs.

Space Across the Curriculum
The Space Across the Curriculum brochure describes the Space Foundation's hands-on, professional development courses for PreK-12 educators. The classes, which will be offered next summer at the Space Foundation Discovery Institute in Colorado Springs, Colo., and at Colorado State University-Pueblo, are customized for every grade level and subject.

Participants can earn continuing education credits, graduate credits or work toward master's degrees in multiple related disciplines at Colorado State University-Pueblo, Regis University or the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Lessons are instantly transferrable to the classroom. A limited number of scholarships are available for teachers.
