Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) in conjunction with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Wallops Flight Facility is pleased to announce a professional development opportunity for Community College STEM Faculty.
This two-day, residential workshop focuses on the integration of STEM in the NASA workplace with the purpose of assisting faculty in educating students on the importance of teamwork, technical skills and problem solving.
Briefings and tours will highlight the suborbital and orbital missions and launches conducted at NASA Wallops and around the world. The importance of the collaborative work of engineers, scientists, technicians, safety and range control personnel will be demonstrated. The participants will also experience a hands-on case study on team work, trouble shooting and real-time decision making.
The workshop will be at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility where participants will be provided lodging, meals and workshop materials. Upon completion of a post workshop survey, participants will receive a $800 stipend.
