We believe that investing in teachers significantly increases student achievement and opportunities for success in all areas.
Space Across the Curriculum
We recognize that teachers face many challenges in developing lesson plans that engage students, meet district and state standards and are fun and rewarding to deliver. This is why we place a great deal of focus on delivering professional development to educators with programs that meet education standards by integrating science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) into daily curriculum. Our courses use space as the “hook” to engage students and provide activities that are instantly transferable to the classroom. Our Teacher Liaison program links master educators from around the globe for networking, support and exchange.
Educator Professional Development Workshops
The Space Foundation offers a number of programs for all teachers:
- Classes held at the Space Foundation Discovery Center in Colorado Springs, CO
- Attend classes online if you can't attend in person
- Courses can be conducted for half-day or full-day sessions at your school
- Professional development courses can be a part of the Space in the Community program
Teachers engage in a remote Mars mission in the Space Foundation Discovery Center Mars Robotics Laboratory in a professional development course.
