Educator Webinar with NASA’s Leland Melvin
April 24, 2012, 7pm ET

For Educators


Leland Melvin, NASA’s Associate Administrator for Education and former astronaut, will discuss his incredible career as an astronaut flying on two NASA missions, a scientist, his days as a professional NFL athlete, and his current role leading the Agency’s education efforts to develop innovative strategies and partnerships aimed at inspiring K-12 students and beyond to pursue STEM disciplines. You’ll learn about NASA’s activities and programs that provide students with entertaining and educational hands-on experiences. You’ll also learn about the resources and programs available to educators, such as NASA Explorer Schools that encourage educators to participate and compete for opportunities in the Reduced Gravity Program, which includes flying on a Zero G airplane to perform science experiments.

Oi galera, gostaria de uma ajuda, eu adquirir um pacote de TV HD no PC no site www.tvhd.com.br tenho acesso a vários canais através de um painel de controle que eu visualizo no próprio navegador, como eu faço para gravar os programas e série de TV no meu PC, lembrando que não tem nem um programa instalado no meu PC é todo pelo próprio navegador 100% online. Quem tiver uma ideia, por favor, me ajude meu e-mail: riclife@ig.com.br

Help!!! ***Teachers who have participated in this webinar*** Do you think it would benefit second graders? The suggestion is 3rd grade and up. Just wondering if this is something I should share with our teachers. Thanks in advance for your response!

Leland Melvin is a class act!!! He really relates to teachers and students. He supports STEM education all the way. It's great to have him in a position of leadership at NASA! I'm looking forward to the seminar....Lynn McDaniel, Stewart Middle School in Tampa. Florida

As a child I once saw the X-15 on the back of a flat bed tractor trailer, and later in life had the honor of meeting Scott Crutchfield. Now our high school is looking forward to starting up its aerospace engineering class as part of our Project Lead The Way program. Even better, I GET to teach the class! I never would have imagined life would be so good to me, and now I am looking forward to your wonderful webinar tomorrow. Thank you for providing these opportunities for teachers.
