Teachers In Space Accepting Applications For Summer Workshops

Sessions Focusing On Space Medicine and Human Factors

The Space Frontier Foundation’s Teachers in Space (TIS) is accepting teacher’s applications for its free Space Medicine and Human Factors summer workshop. Teachers in Space is a project to inspire student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by engaging teachers with authentic astronaut training and real space science experiences combined with information and resources they bring into classrooms across America.

The workshop is offered for high school teachers of math, science and technology.
 
The Space Medicine and Human Factors workshop offers learning in high-altitude physiology and respiration, decompression and vacuum exposure, space weather and radiation, as well as the effects of weightlessness, G-forces, noise, and vibration. Participants will experience the effects of high altitude in a normobaric chamber used to teach pilots how to recognize the symptoms of oxygen loss at high altitudes.  In addition, participants will learn about the history of commercial space, the space environment and its effect on space travelers and space weather. Workshop will culminate with a Design Challenge in which participants will design human accommodations for a sub-orbital space vehicle, taking into consideration all the factors explored in the week’s activities. The workshop will be held at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL on June 24-28, 2013. In addition to returning workshop leads Chantelle Rose, Director of Educational Operations at Challenger Center of Alaska, and Dr. Jason Kring, Assistant Professor of Human Factors and Systems at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), expert instructors include Dr. Sten Odenwald, NASA Goddard astronomer; Dr. John Deaton, Professor, School of Aeronautics, Florida Tech; Dr. Lance Erickson, Professor, Applied Aviation Science, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU); and Michael Coman, Assistant Professor of Aeronautical Science (ERAU).
 
Teacher of science, technology, engineering, or math at the high school level are encouraged to apply. Space is limited; only 30 seats are available. The deadline for workshop applications is April 1, 2013.  The workshop is free of charge, and ubsidized housing will be available at a cost of $25 per night (shared rooms). Meals are not provided, but a limited number of stipends will be available to help defray the cost of meals and transportation. The maximum size of a stipend is $400.
