Summer Experiences


As the year ends my excitement grows. In June I will leave on the 15th to experience something I’ve always wanted to do.. Space Camp. With the sponsorship of Honeywell I will be attending Space Camp with other teachers. I never thought this would happen!! When I completed the application for the Honeywell Educators at Space Camp, I never thought I would be chosen. But I was and now I will be attending Space Camp from June 15th-21st. I will be blogging and Tweeting during that time.

My next summer experience will be in July when I go to Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA.  Here I will be doing a NASA summer experience with Atmospheric Science. This will take place during July 22nd-27th. Again I didn’t think I would be picked.

Both offer an opportunity to bring back material for my students. Hopefully using the personal experiences to highlight STEM topics and increase interest among my students.
