Space Across the Curriculum Concludes in Charles County, Maryland

Partnership Provides STEM Lessons for Teachers

The Space Foundation concluded its 2012 Space Across the Curriculum program in Charles County, Md., presenting several courses to teachers with Charles County Public Schools through a partnership with the district.

Every summer, the Space Foundation offers Space Across the Curriculum teacher professional development courses. These intensive week-long graduate-level courses for pre-k - 12 educators provide space-related science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) content that is instantly transferable to the classroom. All courses are hands-on and focus on national standards and STEM principles. Although the underlying concentration is on STEM, the courses are structured to adapt lessons to all grade levels and all curriculum areas. Participants do not need to be science or math teachers, and public, private and homeschool teachers from around the globe are welcome.

Plan now to attend Space Across the Curriculum in 2013, which will include the new course Meteorology and Space Weather. See details here.
