NASA Educator Professional Development Collaboratie at Texas State University is presenting a free 60-minute webinar for educators.
 

Participants will learn about how Technology drives exploration. Using the Beginning Engineering Science and Technology curriculum, participants will learn how to use the engineering design process to build a satellite and test green propellant. Participants will also learn about current research going on at NASA, specifically the Green Propellant Infusion Mission.

 

This educational activity continues to support STEM educators through the delivery of NASA education content and engagement in educator professional development opportunities.

 

 


Barbie Buckner is a 20+ year STEM classroom teacher with a Doctorate’s Degree in Mathematics Education from the University of Louisville. Her research interest included the impact of technology on student achievement and teacher behavior. Buckner recently served as a 2013-14 Einstein Fellow at the National Science Foundation Education and Human Resources Directorate where she collaborated with colleagues on learning, learning environments, boarding participating and workforce development. Barbie sees education as her calling and has spent her life sharing her love for learning with everyone around her. Knowing that today’s student will compete in a global economy, Barbie says that “It is imperative that today’s students are prepared with consistent rigorous and relevant standards that produce more STEM majors, particularly women, to keep this great nation at the forefront in technology, innovation, and advancement.”
