Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC)

February 7-9, 2019

Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC) 
Space Center Houston 
https://spacecenter.org/educator-resources/teachers-seec/

With new ideas for the classroom and hands-on professional development sessions from NASA experts and leading educators about what’s happening now in human space exploration, SEEC puts the power and wonder of space into a teacher’s hands.

Over 500 teachers from kindergarten through 12th grades from around the world are expected to attend the hands-on learning environment with rocket scientists, astronauts, and renowned educators. The three-day program provides educators opportunities to be among Space Center Houston’s extensive space artifact collection. Educators will discover “The Real Thing” with more than 400 things to see and do.

Space Center Houston will connect formal and informal educators with the latest teaching tools to inspire the next generation of explorers. Teachers will receive various cross-curriculum ideas, ready-to-implement classroom activities, and valuable networking opportunities with their colleagues, while earning up to 24 hours of continuing education credit.

Attendees will take behind-the-scenes tours of the astronaut training facilities at NASA Johnson Space Center and learn about the technology and research that are furthering NASA’s current and future deep space missions.

At the conference, Space Center Houston will honor one teacher with the Cherri Brinley Outstanding Educator Award, named in honor of the 14-year SEEC veteran. Brinley was a Houston-area educator and tireless advocate of space science, inspiring fellow educators and students alike even through her battle with terminal cancer.

Dedicated to empowering educators, SEEC provides continuing education workshops, access to industry leaders and networking opportunities. For more information about this and other Space Center Houston educational programs, visit www.spacecenter.org/education.
