Artemis Companion Course PD

Our companion course program offers units and lessons for educators to integrate concepts from our ROADS challenges into their classrooms. Lessons are provided at upper elementary, middle school, and high school levels. To launch our new companion course each year, we also offer educator professional development (PD) to introduce teachers to the materials and activities.

For our 2022–2023 Artemis ROADS companion course, we will offer two PD workshops, one in August and one in October. The workshops are two days each. Please note: These workshops are for teachers who will be using the course in their classrooms. A workshop tailored specifically for Mission Advisors interested in leading a Challenge will be held separately.

August 9 & 11

Times: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 12:30–2:30 p.m. PDT (both days)
Optional Help Session: 8–10 a.m. PDT on August 11th

Registration: CLOSED on Friday, July 29, at 12 p.m. PDT

October 1 & 8

Times: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 12:30–2:30 p.m. PDT (both days)
Optional Help Session: 8–10 a.m. on October 8th


The workshops will be held virtually, but will be hands-on! If you need supplies, please indicate that on your registration (form below). This year we’re excited to also offer an asynchronous introduction module which will be available on a platform called Canvas.

Please tell us about the population of students your school works with. NESSP's mission is to provide enhanced STEM education using NASA science to underserved and underrepresented communities. An understanding of your organization's overall demographics is needed for our reports to NASA.

Please tell us, to the best of your ability, about the demographics of the students your organization serves. All fields are required (even if 0).
