2017 MICROGRAVITY UNIVERSITY FOR EDUCATORS TEAMS

 

Twelve teams represented by sixty formal educators throughout the nation are participating in the 2017 Microgravity University for Educators (MgUE). The educator teams represent 14 states and 1 U.S. territory. Teams were encouraged to design a solution to a technical problem or an improvement to an existing solution identified by NASA scientists and engineers. Educator teams submitted a Satellite Launching Experimental Device (SLED) design to be tested on behalf of their K-12 students at Johnson Space Center's Space Vehicle Mock-Up Facility (SVMF).

MgUE provides Educator Professional Development (EPD) on NASA Education resources related to microgravity topics such as law of gravity, free fall, orbital mechanics, and long-duration space flight. Educators earn 50 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours by completing the pre-requisite online tasks, face-to-face training, and post-experience outreach. This activity is funded by NASA's STEM Education and Accountability Projects (SEAP) to provide educators with an authentic STEM experience in experimentation.

Congratulations to the 2017 Microgravity University for Educators teams.
