COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (May 16, 2013) – The Space Foundation has awarded a scholarship to Brenda D. Krause, a kindergarten teacher at The Classical Academy (TCA) Central Campus in Colorado Springs, Colo. The Anna and Kathryn Probert Educator Enrichment Scholarship provides Krause with tuition, materials fees, plus a $500 stipend to attend the Space Foundation Space Across the Curriculum teacher professional development course Pre-K-2 Early Childhood Space Exploration.

This scholarship is awarded annually for educators at The Classical Academy (TCA) Central Campus in Colorado Springs.

In her application, Krause wrote: Kindergarten students are naturally fascinated with space. I would be especially excited and energized to find ways to teach space and science that would cover multiple discipline areas.

Space Across the Curriculum courses are specifically designed to provide teachers with space-based content that is instantly transferable to the classroom and can be integrated across the curriculum.

The Space Foundation offers these graduate-level week-long summer courses for pre-k – 12 educators to provide science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) standards-based content that can be adapted to all grade levels. Participants do not need to be science or math teachers. Public, private and homeschool teachers from around the globe are welcome.
