ISSET (International Space School Educational Trust), in partnership with the University of Maryland invite teachers of any discipline to visit Washington schools, meet educational leaders and visit the Hubble Control Centre and Goddard Space Centre in your school holiday periods.
The programme enables delegates to make contacts with space scientists and technologists as well as US educators and teachers.
The expectation is that the experience of working at the heart of NASA with first hand contacts with space and science experts will be an inspirational and invigorating experience. It is expected to:
