2014-15 NASA LEARN Opportunity

Audience: 6-12 Educators
Application Deadline: April 21, 2014
The Long-term Engagement in Authentic Research at NASA, or LEARN, Project is seeking educators for an innovative program that provides onsite research and training opportunities with NASA scientists in the summer and guided research projects that continue throughout the school year. Participants conduct their own research with help of a team of NASA scientists and share and integrate these projects into the classroom.

This summer, participants will complete two weeks of onsite work at NASA's Langley Research Center during the weeks of July 7-11 and July 14-18, 2014. Teachers will receive approximately 70 hours of professional development. Onsite work will be followed by continued research through 2015 via virtual research team meetings and data presentations. A stipend is offered for participants, and educators may present proposals for travel funding to present their research at regional conferences.

This opportunity is open to science, technology, engineering and mathematics educators of grades 6-12. Earth science, physics, chemistry and mathematics teachers are strongly encouraged to apply. Application is open to U.S. citizens only.

Applications are due April 21, 2014.
