Opportunity is currently available only to existing NASA Explorer School participant teachers and accompanying team members.
The NASA Explorer Schools Project is NASA's classroom-based gateway for middle and high school students, (grades 4-12), that provide authentic learning experiences designed around NASA's unique missions while promoting student engagement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics based on NASA's resources.
The NES project has partnered with NASA's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program (RGEFP) to create a unique flight week opportunity for teachers. The RGEFP will provide selected teacher teams with classroom experiment modules to create with their students. Teachers will develop these experiments, hypothesize results, collect data, analyze results and test student comprehension over a four to six month period. Teachers will then participate in flight week activities and report back results to their students. Flight program activities include distance learning sessions, video conferencing and post flight presentations.
