Astronomy Summer School of East Texas (ASSET)
ASSET is a summer workshop program for grades 6 - 12 in-service and pre-service science teachers from academically underachieving school districts. ASSET will instruct teachers on how to convey the nature of science to their students, as well as cover astronomy concepts, using NASA data. Each year 15 teachers will be selected from a group of applicants to participate in a two-week astronomy workshop. They will be instructed on the use of a number of lesson modules that incorporate NASA data, in a format that will allow them easily incorporate the material into their classroom lesson plans.
