During the Space Symposium Teacher Liaison Workshops, Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons receive space-themed, hands-on training that they can take back to their classrooms to better engage students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Teacher Liaisons are nationally recognized as space and science education advocates, serving as an active link between their school/district, NASA and the Space Foundation. Teacher Liaisons receive many privileges, participate in special activities and receive specialized training at Space Foundation and NASA workshops. Teacher Liaisons are invited to attend the 30th Space Symposium at no charge to help inspire, enable and propel their students to become the next generation of space explorers.
