Apply Soon for NESSP Regional Summits and Teacher Workshops

Applications for NESSP’s 2018 STEM educator summits and teacher training workshops are opening soon.

Our education summits will bring together formal and informal educators to discuss and be trained in engaging hands-on activities with a culturally relevant focus designed to motivate and enable middle and high school students to be more successful in science, technology engineering and math (STEM) topics.

Topics will also include connections to NASA missions and scientists.

Lodging and meals will be provided for participants at no cost. Travel assistance is also available. Preference will be given to educators who commit to facilitating a NESSP-funded summer camp in their community.


The first summit — Expanding NASA Opportunities for Native American and Alaska Native Learners — will be held June 25-29, 2018 in Ellensburg, WA.

The second summit — Expanding NASA Opportunities for Underserved Communities Summit — will be held July 10-14, 2018 in Seattle, WA.
