What's Included

NGSS has greater emphasis on astronomy. This summer institute for teachers will expand your horizons in the space sciences. Advances in imaging the interior of Earth have caused us to revise our ideas about how Earth formed and is evolving. Satellites and powerful telescopes such as the Hubble have brought surprising new information about the universe. This 5-day summer institute for teachers of science (elementary – high school) will strengthen your content knowledge of astronomy and help you and your schools develop curriculum for astronomy and planetary geology. The institute includes engaging lectures by cutting-edge researchers, teaching strategies, hands-on classroom activities, and solar and night-time observing. You will also be certified to borrow NASA lunar and meteorite disks.
