Short Description:

This project provides educators around the country with professional development opportunities. Since research shows that an initial face-to-face training, followed up by a few distance learning opportunities, is more effective than single, stand-alone workshops, Mars Public Engagement has begun to take that approach, partnering with NSTA for educator professional development.  Face-to-face regional workshops continue to occur around the country, with recruitment for distance learning opportunities.
