Friday and Saturday (March 28th and 29th), the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium will be holding a workshop for K-12 educators on incorporating hands-on space lessons in the classroom. These are based on various NASA resources and will include an overview of Next Generation Science Standards as well. Teachers will leave with resources and lesson plans in hand (as well as plenty of NASA goodies for the classroom)!
Participants can register to receive 1 professional development credit for the workshop, meals are provided, and travel reimbursement is available to North Dakota teachers! This is open to both pre-service and in-service teachers.
This is a great opportunity for educators to modify existing lesson plans, and to take home ready-made resources to implement the activities in the classroom. The workshop will also include immersive learning in a planetarium, tour of the space suits, rover, habitat, and spacecraft simulators, and learning about meteorites, looking through an actual collection of space rocks!
