3 November, 2010
If you are a Secondary School Teacher with an interest in earth, planetary and space science, then the Spaceward Bound Mojave 2011 expedition might be just the professional learning for you.
This exciting opportunity is to be held in the Californian Mojave Desert from the 17th to the 21st of April. Spaceward Bound Mojave 2011 is a professional development program aimed at helping educators find exciting new ways to teach and link science. Participants can expect high quality professional activities and fieldwork in desert soils and microbiology, geomicrobiology, astrobiology, hypolithic algae, remote sensing and engineering. It is envisaged that the successful Australian participant will fly into and depart from San Francisco, linking in with other expedition members at the NASA Ames Research Center. You will have an opportunity to spend time working in the field with leading planetary scientists in disciplines including geology and astrobiology.
NASA Spaceward Bound have once again extended this fantastic opportunity to Australian teachers and one lucky person in 2011 will gain an experience of a lifetime working with scientists, engineers and educators in the Mojave Desert.
