Educator Opportunity: Practitioner Focus Group

Out-of-School Time Educator Summer Opportunity announcement from The Center for Science Teaching and Learning at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona

PLANETS (Planetary Learning that Advances the Nexus of Engineering, Technology, and Science) is a NASA funded Out-of-School program that provides free Science and Engineering curriculum and educator support resources for Out-of-School Time educators. This summer PLANETS is bringing together focus groups of out-of-school time educators to help identify effective practices for emergent bilingual learners, Native American learners, and learners who are experiencing physical disabilities.

Are you an experienced educator who would be willing to dedicate 90 minutes of your time this summer?  Do you work with young people in grades 3-8 who are:

  • Emergent bilingual
  • Native American/Alaskan/Hawaiian
  • Experiencing physical disabilities

Participants will receive a $50 gift card for their efforts and their input will help to improve PLANETS project resources that connect OST youth with planetary science and engineering.

Applications are open now and focus groups will take place during the Summer of 2021. Space is limited, so if you are interested please follow this link to learn more and apply today!
