NASA RERC Educator Workshop 
April 21
 
NASA RERC Educator Workshop is for Middle School teachers. The workshop will be held April 21 from 9 am to 4 pm at the NASA RERC at the Museum of Aviation. 
  
 The NASA BEST Activities Guides were designed to teach students the Engineering Design Process. Each guide has been created for grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8.  All grades will follow the same set of activities that teach students about humans' endeavor to return to the Moon: 
  • How we investigate the Moon remotely (Part 1)
  • The modes of transportation to and on the Moon (Part 2)
  • Humans living and working on the Moon (Part 3)
The Engineering Design Process is a series of steps that engineers use to guide them as they solve problems. What makes this curriculum different from the others is there are no "recipe" for building the items in each activity and no given drawings.
 
The emphasis is for students to understand that engineers must "imagine and plan" before they begin to build and experiment. To successfully complete the NASA BEST Activities, students must draw their ideas first before constructing. 
Museum of Aviation Foundation Receives State Flags Donation  
 
The Museum of Aviation Foundation received a donation from Ginger Edenfield to purchase a set of 50 State flags.
State flags are displayed around the Outdoor Amphitheater.  Flags are flown daily.  The weather takes a toll on the flags which arereplaced two times per year.  With support, the State flags will continue to wave.
 
State flags allow individuals, groups or organizations to sponsor a flag for $250 a year.  Flag sponsors get a plate on the flag pole to recognize their sponsorship of a loved one, veteran, organization or relative.  The cost of sponsorship and state flag donations are tax deductible as a donation to the Museum of Aviation Foundation.
 
The Amphitheater is located in the center of the 51-acre Museum complex and is used for concerts, outdoor ceremonies, education programs and other events all year long. 
           
For information about donating toward the purchase of a set of state flags or flag sponsorship, visit www.museumofaviation.org or call (478) 923-6600.
