Apply for Teachers in Space Workshop

This note comes to WGBY thanks to our friend Mort Sternheim at UMASS in his STEM Ed announcements:

In the summer of 2011, Teachers in Space will offer a series of one-week professional-development workshops for high-school-level science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers. Developed in cooperation with NASA, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and other partners, these workshops will provide teachers with an exciting look into the new world of commercial human spaceflight and suborbital science.

Teachers in SpaceAnyone who teaches science, technology, engineering, or math at the high-school level is encouraged to apply. Space is limited; only 25 seats are available in each workshop. The deadline for workshop applications is April 15, but selection may close early based on the number and quality of applications received. All workshops are free of charge to participating teachers. Subsidized housing will be available at a cost of $14 per night (shared rooms). Meals are not provided, but a limited number of stipends will be available to help defray the cost of meals and transportation. The maximum size of a stipend is $400. If you require a travel stipend, you are urged to apply early.
