STEMcon applications due by 4/8!  The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is offering scholarships to educators from the states of AL, AR, IA, MO, and TN, to attend a four-day professional development session featuring NASA-focused STEM content and resources.  For those in other states, keep an eye on your own NASA center (or Alliance emails) for when it’s your turn.



The Global NASA Hackathon is scheduled for April 22-24.  Called the NASA Space Apps Challenge, “hacking” is more than just computers, so join and event near you, or, better yet, host your own to create real and positive change.  “We invite engineers, coders, makers, artists and storytellers to connect over mission-related challenges.”

Free NASA Webinar
series are given on a regular basis for all educators on a variety of topics.  One upcoming topic is the vMAX curriculum overview, for Virtual Missions an Exoplanets, starting on March 30th, as featured by the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.  These webinars are informative, interactive, fun, and frequent, so check them out, and tell them the Museum Alliance sent you!


As always, send any questions our way.  Do good, and have fun!
