Houston, we have a ... science teacher!

Shaun Keyser, a Bridge House School teacher, joined more than 580 educators from seven countries, 39 states, Puerto Rico and Washington DC for hands-on learning experiences with rocket scientists, astronauts and renowned instructors at Space Center Houston’s 25th Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC) from 7 to 9 February.

“Meeting many like-minded teachers from around the world was the highlight of the conference for me. Visiting the Mission Control Center for the International Space Station was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and one that will stay with me for a long time,” said Keyser, a teacher at Bridge House School in Franschhoek. “The conference provided me with many new ideas that I can’t wait to apply in the classroom to enrich my students.”

The non-profit science and space exploration learning centre offers teachers and students of all disciplines access to authentic learning experiences in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

“We’re empowering teachers who are a vital part of developing the next generation of explorers,” said Daniel Newmyer, Space Center Houston vice president of education. “Space exploration learning is for everyone. We bring leading experts together to help teachers provide the latest resources and hands-on activities in the STEM-based curriculum.”

For teachers from kindergarten to Grade 12, the three-day conference featured keynote speakers such as NASA Johnson Space Center deputy director Vanessa Wyche, New Horizons principle investigator Dr. Alan Stern, and legendary Apollo flight director Gene Kranz. With new ideas for the classroom and hands-on professional development sessions from NASA experts and leading educators about what’s happening now in human space exploration, SEEC puts the power and wonder of space into a teacher’s hands.

Over the years, thousands of educators have attended from the United States and around the world. Space Center Houston connects formal and informal educators with the latest teaching tools to inspire the next generation of explorers.

Delegates took behind-the-scenes tours of the astronaut training facilities at NASA Johnson Space Center and learned about the technology and research that are furthering NASA’s current and future deep space missions.

Next year’s Space Exploration Educators Conference will be held from 6 to 8 February. V For more information about Space Center Houston educational programmes, visit spacecenter.org/education-programs/.
