NASA ADMINISTRATOR BOLDEN NAMED CHAMPION OF SUMMER LEARNING, KICKS OFF THE SUMMER OF INNOVATION

The National Summer Learning Association has recognized NASA Administrator Charles Bolden as a Champion of Summer Learning. The award honors Bolden’s dedication to keeping America’s middle school students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through a new initiative called the Summer of Innovation.

Bolden officially kicked off the Summer of Innovation on June 10 at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. Using content from NASA’s missions and research, the program will engage thousands of middle school students in STEM learning during the summer months when many students experience “summer slide,” or a loss of skills acquired during the school year. Summer of Innovation is a cornerstone of the Educate to Innovate campaign President Obama announced last November.
