Space & Rocket Center

The Baltimore Sun recently featured a video interview with some of the 30 area middle school teachers who attended a program at the Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. In the video, the teachers talk about how worthwhile it is for them to attend programs such as these because it gives them ideas for programs to bring back to their classrooms and promote math, science and technology to their students:

It seems like STEM education is everywhere in the news today. The Obama administration has been stressing the importance of STEM education in the United States and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recently noted at the National Science Board panel discussion that the quality of STEM teaching is of singular importance to the success of students.

One way to help promote STEM education is through participation in eCYBERMISSION. The primary mission of the competition is to make math, science and technology exciting while teaching students the importance of improving one’s community. And since eCYBERMISSION can be either a part of a school’s existing curriculum or created as an after-school activity, every community has the opportunity to participate.

What do you think about STEM education in the United States? Do you know of any teachers who are looking for new ways to promote STEM education to their students? If so, please have them visit our web site at or contact Mission Control at 1-866-GO-CYBER (462-9237).
