In order to promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, the NASTAR Center offers professional development programs for teachers. Educators who attend NASTAR Center programs can pilot an aircraft simulator, fly a space launch and reentry in a centrifuge, or make an 8,000-foot ascent in an altitude chamber as they learn hands-on techniques they can apply in their classrooms.
William F. Mitchell, Chairman and CEO of ETC, stated “We are pleased to open the NASTAR Center to teachers for this program. This nation is facing future shortages of skilled engineers and scientists. We hope attendance at NASTAR Center Professional Development classes will help teachers inspire young people to pursue technical careers.”
