MAVEN Educator Ambassador ProjectThe MAVEN Educator Ambassador (MEA) project focuses on topics that are fundamental to space science. This national project provides inspiring material on magnetism and spectroscopy for middle school and high school students. The project relies on a train-the-trainer approach: MAVEN personnel train teachers in the project, and those teachers go on to train a second tier of teachers.
Our MEA project provides:
- Two week-long workshops, one in the summer of 2013 and one in the summer of 2015
- Follow-on support for the teachers as they present hour-long to daylong workshops to additional educators in the year following their training
- Community-building between all the MEAs in the project through social networking and a weekly MEA email newsletter
As part of the project, we will be developing new lessons and video interactives that fit within an existing middle school program called “Project Spectra!” We will be piloting these lessons with interested schools, in addition to the MEA professsional development outlined above.
For more information about the MEA project, or if you are a teacher seeking to add your name to our professional development distribution list, please email email@example.com with “MAVEN Educator Ambassador inquiry” in the subject line.
