COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.(Aug. 29, 2019) — Do you have what it takes to be a Space Foundation Teacher Liaison? Begun in 2004, this prestigious, internationally recognized program provides select educators with benefits and privileges that will improve their teaching skills, strengthen their resumes, and influence space and science education on an international level.
Teacher Liaisons tend to be Master Teachers who want to inspire students to pursue and excel in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Membership is open to educators of all disciplines, ranging from science and math, to language arts, physical education, special education, and the arts. Applicants must demonstrate how they integrate space education into their curriculum.
This free program is open to public, private, and homeschool teachers, school administrators such as principals, specialists, curriculum and instruction developers, as well as others who deliver educational programs to students.
A new flight of Teacher Liaisons is selected each January. If chosen for the program, teachers receive Space Foundation training (pictured) and resources to further integrate space into their classrooms, and are invited to attend the Space Foundation’s Space Symposium held each spring in Colorado Springs.
