Teachers selected to fly their projects will receive a budget to construct their flight experiment, travel expenses to and from Florida for the flight campaign, videographic and photographic support to document their experience and experiments, and guidance and technical support for their microgravity teaching projects.
Workshops will be led by master teachers from the National Space Society in coordination with the Carthage College Space Sciences Program.
Teachers will work with CCSS program students and faculty director, Kevin Crosby. He and program students have thousands of hours of parabolic flight experience across more than a dozen years of regular flight campaigns.
Workshop participants will also be supported by education staff from ZERO-G Corp. and Embedded Teacher participants from previous years.
Requirements for participation include evidence of space-related teaching and demonstrated history of innovative teaching in STEM/STEAM fields.
