New Flight of Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons Announced

The Space Foundation has selected an outstanding team of 20 educators for its 2013 flight of Teacher Liaisons. The teachers were chosen for their active promotion of space and science education.

Teacher Liaisons serve as advocates for space-themed education across the curriculum and use Space Foundation-provided training and resources to further integrate space principles into the classroom. The highly regarded Space Foundation Teacher Liaison program has more than 270 active participants, including the 2013 flight. The teachers are selected by a panel comprising experienced Teacher Liaisons and representatives from the space industry and the military.

The 2013 Teacher Liaisons will be publicly recognized at the Space Foundation's 29th National Space Symposium, which is being held April 8-11 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo.

In addition to the recognition activities, the 2013 Teacher Liaisons will participate in workshops and education programs at the Space Symposium. And following the Space Symposium, they can take advantage of specialized training and instruction at Space Foundation and NASA workshops with optional graduate-level credit; exclusive science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professional development experiences with optional continuing education credit; and special space-oriented student programs created just for Teacher Liaisons.
