NASA Launches the Endeavor Science Teaching Certificate Project

Teachers College will cooperate with NASA
As part of NASA's commitment to the effective preparation of K-12 science teachers, formal educators are invited to apply to become a NASA Endeavor Fellow. Each Fellow will be fully funded to complete a unique Online Certificate in Applied Science Education with Teachers College, Columbia University. Online courses begin January 2009 or September 2009 for the first two cohorts.

The goal of the Endeavor Science Teaching Certificate Project is to give teachers the cutting-edge tools necessary to contribute to the development of a STEM workforce. Fellows may earn a special "Leadership Distinction" by demonstrating their ability to "scale up" what they have learned beyond the walls of their classrooms to the district or regional level.

U.S. Satellite Laboratory, Inc. of New York is designing and delivering the Endeavor Fellowship Project with NASA and Teachers College, Columbia University. Over time, the project will award over 200 Endeavor Fellows with one- to two-year fellowships. Graduate credit for the courses is included.
