Media Highlights New Teacher Liaisons

Written by: developer

Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons are extraordinary educators who use space-related education programs and principles in the classroom and act as advocates for space-based education in their schools and districts. When selected for the program, they receive Space Foundation training and resources to further integrate space into their classrooms.

We select a new flight of Teacher Liaisons each January. Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons serve as active links between the Space Foundation and their schools and school districts and often work with other space organizations, such as NASA.
