Mini-Mission Information and Registration

There are two steps to becoming a Mini-Mission instructor.

Step 1: Register the instructors

Before you register :

  • Be prepared to attend at least one training session. The information sessions are optional but strongly recommended. Additional training can be offered as needed, so if you cannot make these times we can still accommodate you.
    • General Information Sessions will be offered (attend one):
      • Friday, June 10th at 4 pm PST
      • Monday, June 13th at 4 pm PST
    • ROADS on Icy Worlds Training is offered:
      • MM5 Limits of Life and MM6 Remote Sensing: June 27th from 10 am to 12 pm PST (Register)
      • MM8/9 Robots and MM7 Drones (Option 1): June 29th from 10 am to 12 pm PST (Register)
      • MM8/9 Robots and MM7 Drones (Option 2): July 11th from 10 am to 12 pm PST (Register)
      • Also offered on request to instructors who have registered.
    • James Webb Training is offered:

      • June 29th from 2 to 3 pm PST
      • July 11th from 2 to 3 pm PST (Register)
      • Also offered on request to instructors who have registered.

Then complete Step 1: Mini-Mission Instructor Registration. 

Whatโ€™s next? After you complete this form, we will send you the supplies needed for the training sessions you plan to attend. Additional supplies for students will be sent after you complete Step 2.

Step 2: Register the participants

At least 2-weeks before the start of your mini-mission you should finalize your mini-mission by sending NESSP your participantโ€™s information. If you would like NESSP to provide t-shirts for your participants, please send us the student information as soon as possible.

Before you fill out the second registration form:

  • Finalize your mini-missions schedule including dates, times, and locations. Be prepared to upload a schedule that describes the dates and times of your mini-mission and a short description of the planned activities. 
  • Download the Student Information Spreadsheet and fill in your participant’s information. 
  • Be prepared to request extra support, such as help running the scholarship session, a college student panel, or teaching assistant support. If you want NESSP to virtually visit your event, please give specific dates and times.

Then complete Step 2: Mini-Mission Student Registration

What is next? Once we have student information we will mail additional mini-mission materials.
