NASA Pays Virtual Visit to EME 2040 Technology for Educators Class


A message from Falecia Williams, President, West Campus

Students in Professor of Education Rhonda Atkinson’s West Campus EME 2040 Technology for Educators class learned about how NASA supports K-12 STEM (science, technology, learning and math) teaching and learning in a virtual class with leaders from NASA’s Digital Learning Network (DLN) at the Kennedy Space Center.

During the conference, students learned about the connection between math and science, how technology can be used to get students interested in science and about DLN’s interactive instruction opportunities on topics such as: earth, the moon, the “solar neighborhood,” states of matter and rockets, that that teachers can use to as part of their lessons.

“After the class, students indicated they saw a connection between math and science more clearly and that they experienced a greater realization that science is at the core of our lives,” shared Rhonda.

Student Brieanna Richardson said, “This inspired me to learn more about science as a future teacher and changed my perspective about the subject.”
