Airborne Research Experience for Educators Academy

In support of our nation’s commitment to training and retaining 100,000 science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, teachers over the next decade through the 100Kin10 initiative, NASA’s Earth Science Project Office and NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center’s Office of Education are recruiting up to 24 STEM and language arts teachers to participate in the Airborne Research Experience for Educators Academy, a five-day research experience from July 28 – Aug. 1, 2014, at the Aerospace Education Research Operations Institute in Palmdale, California. Applicants can be formal (traditional classrooms, public or private) or informal (museum, science center, etc.) educators of grades K-12.

Through interactions with NASA’s unique content, facilities and personnel, the academy will focus on three education goals through a variety of interfaces, including virtual, in-person and self-directed learning:

1. Engage in NASA’s unique, airborne research-based missions.
2. Increase core scientific and research knowledge base.
3. Generate NASA mission-based STEM resources and teaching materials.

Participants will be anchored in a community of scientific practice through an end-to-end airborne experience that will focus on two NASA earth science missions:

1. Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel, an investigation of how tropical storms form and develop into hurricanes.
2. Airborne Tropical Tropopause Experiment, a study of atmospheric compound concentrations and their impact on the Earth’s climate and energy budget.

To increase core scientific knowledge, participants will attend technical seminars from mission scientists and engineers, and observe how NASA conducts cutting-edge aeronautical and airborne science research at the Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards, California and at the center’s Building 703, a science and aircraft integration facility in Palmdale, California. Technical content may include subject matter in natural events (e.g., earthquakes, volcanoes and hurricanes), climate, remote sensing, atmospheric chemistry and other relevant subjects.

Further, educators will learn to develop computational and critical thinking skills through an introduction to computer programming using the Arduino microcontroller, and attend pedagogic workshops that focus on engineering design, inquiry-based instruction, and integration of technology and data-focused curricula into the classroom. Experiences will be translated into teaching practice through the use of NASA STEM-based resources, and development of a post-workshop STEM action plan.

This opportunity will remain open until all seats are filled. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, and can apply as individuals or as an interdisciplinary team of two to three persons.
