Faculty/ Teacher Professional Development Institute

Location: Hubbard Building

The program is designed to increase teacher’s skills in teaching mathematics and science while incorporating technology in the curriculum. This is achieved through the development of a problem-based learning, or PBL, space exploration theme. Each student is assigned to an Institute Flight Team. Teachers develop a lesson that they will teach to their students. . One major goal is to transfer this experience and acquired knowledge into useable lesson plans for teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM.

The PSTI staff and NASA education specialists will guide participants through a wide range of learning activities designed to model inquiry based learning in mathematics and science and the effective use of technology in teaching and learning.
