Educator Professional Development

NESSP's goal is to strenghten STEM education across our region. We also support community-based science and engineering events in partnership with underserved and underrepresented communities.

Professional Development for Student Challenges & Companion Course

At the beginning of every new academic year we offer professional development for educators who plan to use our Companion Course materials in their classroom or to serve as Mission Advisors for the upcoming Student Challenge. For 2022–2023 our framework is Artemis ROADS, based around the NASA’s Artemis Mission.

Professional Development for Mini-Missions

A variety of additional professional development is offered by NESSP partners in Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Idaho.
