ETC’s The NASTAR Center Becomes NASA Space Place Community Partner
Southampton, PA, USA. May 28, 2013 – The NASTAR® Center, the premier commercial space training and research center in the world, has been designated as a “NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Space Place Community Partner”. The NASTAR Center and the NASA Space Place partnership help support mutual initiatives to encourage, facilitate, and promote space-based education. The Space Place was started in February 1998 as an education and public outreach project of NASA’s New Millennium Program. The Space Place program includes a kid-friendly web site (www.spaceplace.nasa.gov) and bulletin board displays at Community Partner sites around the country. Its target audience is elementary-school-age kids. As a Space Place Community Partner, the NASTAR Center has added a Space Place display to its Educator Resource Center (ERC).
“This is one more avenue where teachers and students who visit the NASTAR Center can learn about current NASA projects,” said Gregory Kennedy, the NASTAR Center Director of Education. “NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has provided educational materials that will help us excite young people about the space program,” he added.
The NASTAR Center is an Affiliate Member of the NASA Pennsylvania Space Grant Consortium and offers science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educational programs for students and teachers. To learn more about NASTAR’s Education Programs, go to www.nastarcenter.com/education.
