Do you have what it takes to be a Space Foundation Teacher Liaison? You can be one of a select few educators from across the nation who join our Space Foundation Teacher Liaison ranks each year.

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. If selected for the program, they receive Space Foundation training and resources to further integrate space into their classrooms. The 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 and math (STEM), 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.

DEADLINE for applications for FLIGHT 11-14 is Friday, December 6, 2013.
