PROMOTING SCIENTIFIC LITERACY THROUGH THE IMPROVEMENT OF NASA’S AEROSPACE EDUCATION SERVICES PROGRAM’S RESOURCE MATERIALS

Abstract:
The purpose o f this study was to determine the degree to which AESP workshop materials were used by AESP workshop teachers in their classroom curriculum. These materials are specifically designed by the NASA Education Working Group, NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas, to present aviation and space oriented activity- based lessons that model National Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education Standards therefore promoting scientific literacy. AESP workshops provide the opportunity for teachers to be involved in hands-on activities found in the NASA developed education materials used by the participants at the time ofthe workshop. This research was used to determine if AESP workshop participants actually use the materials, activities, and teaching style practiced in the AESP workshops in their classrooms. New materials and activities have been designed which promote the National Education Standards using NASA’s enterprises into the mathematics, science, geography, and technology classrooms. AESP specialists and the NASA Education Division would like to know how to better serve classroom teachers. The following research questions were studied: 1. What characteristics identified those teachers who responded to the study? 2. What aerospace workshop activities were seen as being useful in the classroom? 3. What aerospace workshop activities were actually implemented into classroom curriculum?
