Educator Academy At Space Camp

How do you want to spend your summer vacation this year? I want to go to Space Camp for Teachers!

Educator Academy at Space Camp is one of the many wonderful things I learned about this week at the Space Camp Tweetup #sctweetup for the movie A Smile As Big As The Moon.

OK wait a minute let me rephrase that a little bit.....


Educator Academy at Space Camp is something I already knew about, but not a lot about, until this week at Space Camp.


Space Academy for Educators is all the fun of Space Camp, but designed for teachers.

This five day program packs over 45 hours of activities, speakers, and experiences that are designed to be taken back and implemented in the classroom.
