Workshop Description

Come and learn how you can become the next space cowboy. Honeywell's Space Camp for Educators might be your ticket. Find out what it is like to walk on the moon, experience 3G's, visit a colony on Mars, fly on the shuttle or ISS, design/build/launch a rocket, see a Saturn rocket, crash a helicopter, eat darn good food, make some awesome friends, to name a few fun things. This will consume the first half of my workshop. This first half is for k-12 educators (including administrators.)
The second half is for secondary science teachers who touch upon physics in their curricula. Come and learn about USU Physics Day @ Lagoon...an annual competition for your students. There is a high school division and middle school/junior high division. Your students will bring pre made projects that will earn them prizes at the event.The teachers get in free (and eat a free catered lunch.)
