Free Idaho Teacher Workshop!

Are you a middle school or high school level teacher interested in a week of field studies with NASA Ames Researchers?

The NASA Idaho Space Grant Consortium (ISGC) has teamed up with NASA Ames Research Center, once again, to bring a weeklong field study called Spaceward Bound to Idaho. Spaceward Bound is a program that involves classroom teachers in authentic planetary fieldwork side-by-side with NASA scientists. Teachers bring the experiences they learn from the field back to their classrooms and assist in the development of curriculum related to human exploration of remote and extreme environments. Some of the past field expeditions have included the Mojave Desert, Australia, Namibia, Pavilion Lake, Antarctica and North Dakota.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the 2013 Spaceward Bound - Idaho!

Dates: June 23rd - June 28th, 2013

We are going back to Southern Idaho and spending a significant amount of time at Craters of the Moon and Worswick Hot Springs. Also, Shoshone Ice Caves will be visited to collect data but very little time will be spent there.

The deadline to sign up is March 22, 2013. We will be selecting 15-20 teachers for this years expedition.

The ISGC has received funding to provide this experience to teachers for free. Your only financial obligation is to get yourself to our starting point on Sunday, June 23, 2013. At this point we are tentatively looking to start in Twin Falls, due to the location of the research sites. Two professional development credits will be given to each teacher who participate.

More information will become available soon.
