TES NEWS Volume 4, Number 1, February 1995

Arizona Mars K-12 Education Program

This year promises to be an exciting one for the Arizona Mars K-12 Education Program. This newsletter is scheduled to be published just before the February 4, 1995, K-12 workshop, "A Day In Space." A joint effort by the ASU MGS TES group and the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, this workshop features the Challenger Center's "Touching the Future" mini-workshop, special Mars science sessions, a model rocketry session by Quest Aerospace Education, Inc., and a star party by the East Valley Astronomy Club. Space Shuttle Astronaut Mike Mullane was scheduled to speak to the teachers and students, and present them with copies of his latest book, Liftoff. The workshop is funded by NASA, JPL, Honeywell, Inc., the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and others to be determined after the newsletter went to press. This event demonstrates the power of cooperation between universities, industries, nonprofit organizations, small businesses, and government agencies, to enhance education for teachers, students, and their communities.

It is now too late to sign up for the February workshop. The next K-12 Teachers' Workshop will be held in August 1995. All K-12 educators are invited to attend. Teachers may arrange TES facility visits for their students by contacting the ASU Admissions Office at (602) 965-2622. The facility can also be visited by computer over the Internet using any WWW browse tool; the URL is: http://tes.asu.edu. For information, call (602) 965-1790.
