NASA's Mission to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt
The cadre of New Horizons educators converged on APL for a 3-day workshop in August. These K-12 master educators were trained on mission science and engineering goals as well as New Horizons curriculum materials, and will carry out their own regional teacher workshops on the mission. The APL workshop included an opportunity to see the New Horizons spacecraft while it was in testing at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center., and several discussions with key mission scientists and engineers. These teachers will lead the New Horizons National Teacher Workshop at Kennedy Space Center, Fla., during launch week in January.
