CaSGC Pre-College Teacher Training Programs

Each year the CaSGC supports a number of precollege activities throughout the State. The CaSGC has set a path for precollege involvement which has the Consortium playing only a support role to the organizations on each of the affiliate campuses which deal directly with precollege curriculum development, teacher education, outreach, and assessment. In each of the projects initiated and for any future precollege projects, that support role focus is being continued.

Throughout California the CaSGC provides support and assistance to the affiliate campus Teacher Education & Training and Outreach Programs. The K-12 education and outreach programs within the three large California higher education systems (University of California System- 10 campuses, California State University System - 22 campuses, and the California Community College System - 128 campuses) are immense programs serving a large population. The CaSGC affiliates are committed to partnering with these programs to influence the introduction a aerospace-related educational material and concepts to these programs.

While the established and existing programs under the California Higher Education Systems provide both the leadership and foundation for exceptional work in teacher education, educational technology, curriculum development and assessment, and quantitative tracking and evaluation, CaSGC provides unique space-related content and coordination capabilities. Into these ongoing precollege programs, the CaSGC provides an interface to space-related educational materials and resources and an opportunity for precollege students to be involved in hands-on space projects. The CaSGC will keep this focus and follow the lead of some of the best precollege educational professionals in California that will insure success.
