This opportunity is not open to the public.

Overview

The United States Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is collaborating with the Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program in order to offer opportunities for K-12 educators to participate in a unique academic experience known as the Reduced Gravity Teacher Flight Opportunity. The Reduced Gravity Teacher Flight Opportunity provides a unique experience for DOE teachers to propose, design, fabricate, fly and evaluate a reduced gravity investigation of their choice.

Eligibility

  • U.S. Citizen
  • All FLYERS MUST be 18 PRIOR to arrival in Houston
  • All participants must be associated with the DOE Science Education Programs
