• Mars Rover: Can You Hear Me? Can You See Me?
    As we proceed into the future, space exploration is becoming an essential part of our own growth as humans. Space exploration requires innovative, creative, adaptable people to develop the technology necessary for these grand endeavors into new environments. Specifically, the first settlers on Mars will have to use technology developed on Earth in order to survive. On Mars, the gravity is approximately one third of Earth's gravity; the average temperature is -81 degrees F, rather than 57 degrees...

    A Teacher Institute for Professional Practice in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  Imagine a dramatically new approach to teaching and learning characterized by challenging, problem-based learning experiences that tear down compartmentalized disciplines and curriculums, and engage students in scientific inquiry and the engineering design process. Imagine a learning environment rich in opportunities for discovery that not only build scientific and engineering expertise but also foster teamwork, communication skills, critical thinking and creativity. Now imagine that these environments and experiences are available to every student, in every school, in every community....
