Galileo Educator Network Professional Development Workshop - Georgia

The Aviation Museum at Robbins Air Force Base, Warner Robbins, GA (near Macon, GA)

Saturday, March 22 & Saturday, April 12 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

The NASA Galileo Educator Network (GEN) is a NASA-funded teacher professional development program managed by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. GEN professional development engages teachers of astronomy and general science, especially in grades 3-­9, in effective instructional strategies and educational resources to teach space and Earth science in the context of the Next Generation Science Standards.

GEN makes effective use of NASA-developed and NASA-supported resources, integrating astronomy/space science content with Galileo-inspired science inquiry and exploration.

Teachers who participate in this 15­-hour GEN teacher workshop (12 hours of contact time supplemented with 3 hours of online work) become Galileo Educators. Participants will receive NASA education materials, including The Universe at Your Fingertips, which includes 133 classroom­-tested hands-on activities, and additional resources on a DVD­-ROM.
