Teachers learn new teaching practices in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education by participating in a series of astronaut-style exercises and simulations, build model rockets, meet veteran astronauts, and so much more.
Since 2004, 2,375 teachers from 56 countries have graduated from HESA, inspiring more than 2 million students to pursue STEM education and careers.
Applications open: November 9, 2015 – January 4, 2016
