This is the image for the news article titled Meet FZ's Airborne Astronomy AmbassadorsSpace. The final frontier. These are the voyages of teachers' #LifelongLearning. Their #STEM mission: to explore new curriculum, to seek out new strategies and techniques, and to engage students in learning as they’ve never engaged before.
In this #STEMchat meet West High science teacher Melissa Bouquet and East High science teachers Joe Leibner and Tom Ogle. They are joined by K-12 Science Curriculum Coordinator Anne Green to share their journey as Airborne Astronomy Ambassadors. In 2020 they, along with North High’s Nick Fisher, were among 28 teachers selected to participate in the NASA program through the SETI Institute. They brought what they learned back to their students and are hoping to take flight this summer to complete their training.
