Application Deadline: April 30, 2010

The Adler Planetarium in Chicago, IL invites middle school educators to apply for a professional development workshop and training program focusing on in-depth learning experiences in Earth, Space, and Physical Science topics.  An initial 5-day intensive workshop will be followed by school year implementation of classroom activities and participant-led training workshops for other teachers.

The goal of this program is for participants to gain a better understanding of the science content areas and develop the capacity to train other teachers on NASA heliophysics science and educational resources. NASA satellite mission collaborators for the HEA Program include AIM, Cluster, IBEX, RHESSI, THEMIS, TIMED, MMS, and Voyager.  Lodging support for out-of-town participants and stipends for all participants are available.
