A Preview of the NASTAR Center’s Newest Teacher Professional Development Program

NASTAR Center Space Payload Teacher Workshop
Since the Skylab program in the 1970s, students have been able to design and launch experiments into space. The Skylab Student Involvement Program included 19 experiments built by high school students from across the country. Opportunities for student involvement continued through the Space Shuttle program and into the current International Space Station. With the advent of commercial suborbital spaceflights in the near future, opportunities for launching student experiments into space will grow.
The NASTAR Center’s newest Teacher Professional Development program, Space Payloads, will present the history of student space projects, future launch opportunities, and activities that you can incorporate in the classroom to simulate microgravity and research in space. Particular attention will be given to the payload environment aboard upcoming suborbital spaceflight vehicles and programs that allow your students to design and submit experiments for flight.
