NASA TO TEACH TEACHERS: AEROSPACE WORKSHOP AT SDSM& T JULY 21- 25
NASA education specialist Louis Marshall and other aerospace/ aviation officials will be featured presenters during the “ Aerospace in the Curriculum Teacher Workshop” being offered this summer at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology.

The workshop is designed to help teachers make learning an exciting adventure using state- of- the- art resources from NASA, including hands- on resources in math, science, and technology to meet educational standards. Teachers will model teaching methods, test laws of aerodynamics, build rockets, and develop projects and field trip resources to use with their students. Participants will receive a year’s supply of curriculum resources for their classes and will take part in field trips.
In addition to Louis Marshall from NASA, other workshop presenters will be Bill Daley of Hernandez Engineering Inc., Houston, TX, a geographer/ climatologist for NASA’s Space Shuttle Earth Observation Program; Dennis Yeager, Director of Aerospace Education, Civil Air Patrol North Central Liaison Region, Minneapolis, MN; Steve Hoogerhyde, Federal Aviation Administration Rapid City Flight Standards Office; and SDSM& T Professor Emeritus Lester W.
