Written by: developer

Now that the dust has settled and the kids are back in school, teachers may be looking for space-oriented activities and lessons for their students. The Space Foundation Teacher Liaison program is a great resource for educators who love space.

Teacher Liaisons are extraordinary educators who use space-related education programs and principles in the classroom to act as advocates for space-based education in their schools and districts. If selected for the program, they receive Space Foundation training and resources to further integrate space into their classrooms. This international program is open to public, private and homeschool teachers and school administrators, including principals, specialists, curriculum and instruction developers and administrators, and others who deliver education programs to students.

Teacher Liaisons may be any PreK-20 educator or other professional or informal educator in the PreK-20 arena. Teacher Liaisons tend to be Master Teachers who want to inspire the next generation of students to pursue and excel in the areas of science, technology, engineering, the arts and math (STEAM), but membership is open to educators in all disciplines, ranging from science and math to language arts, physical education, special education or the arts. Applicants need only to demonstrate that they effectively integrate space education within their curriculum.

Benefits of the program include complimentary registration and special recognition for the Space Symposium, specialized training and instruction at Space Foundation workshops with optional graduate-level credit, opportunities to meet and communicate with top educators, space leaders, astronauts and scientists from around the world and access to exclusive online idea sharing communities.
