The Middle School Aerospace Scholars (MAS)
The Middle School Aerospace Scholars (MAS) is administered by NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) and funded by the State of Texas. MAS provides teachers an opportunity to experience a one-week summer workshop at JSC and participate in NASA distance learning events throughout the school year with their students. Teachers will work in teams, either from their own school, or with other educators from across the state, to develop an interdisciplinary curriculum plan for the following school year using NASA instructional materials and resources. Participants will attend scientist and engineer briefings as well as JSC behind-the-scenes tours. Some transportation, lodging, meals, and related activities are funded through MAS. To apply, visit the Middle School Aerospace Scholars website at above website and complete the online application. Deadline to apply is March 17, 2009.
