Van Allen Probes Educators
The Van Allen Probes education and public outreach (E/PO) programs provide training for formal and informal educators. Middle and high school teachers and informal educators receive content understanding and experience with hands-on activities and interact with scientists through face-to-face workshop opportunities. A unique aspect of the workshop was participation by mission scientists and instrument leads who designed and presented classroom activities.The objective of the Van Allen Probes E/PO effort is to prepare teachers to engage and educate students in STEM content and Van Allen Probes heliophysics-related science as well as engineering and technology. This effort also has a lesson plan/curriculum component. Ongoing communication and support from the Van Allen Probes E/PO office was provided to educators following the workshop.
