GID has been selected for a grant funded national study on inquiry based learning and training practices
Cohorts with educator teams from NJ, WI, TX and SC are being selected for this summer’s training. Please reach out if you are interested in participating.
Through hands-on activities, museum tours, visits to other museums, group work, and expertise from museum educators and content experts, teachers will use aerospace science, history, and technology to shape their ideas about authentic learning and bring informal education techniques into their classrooms.
