Murray State University’s college of education has established a partnership with NASA’s Aerospace Education Services Project (AESP) to provide professional development for pre-service and in-service teachers in the west Kentucky region. An AESP educational specialist will provide educational resources to science methods students and National Science Teacher Association student chapter members.
Students will also be able to utilize NASA educators, scientists and engineers as special resources. Area teachers will be allowed to check out materials such as moon rocks, items used by astronauts in space and NASA lesson plans that are aligned with the Common Core Standards. They will also have access to online materials and a list of classroom activities.
Schools interested in the NASA AESP partnership and the resources available can contact Dr. Brandi King at (270) 809-3752 or via email at email@example.com
