Hey teachers! This one is for you!
Airborne Astronomy Ambassadors Cycle 8 “Mission” Patch Selected
NASA’s Airborne Astronomy Ambassadors (AAA) is a professional development program for high school science teachers designed to improve science teaching and increase student learning and STEM engagement. Training includes a week-long immersion experience at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center Hangar 703 in Palmdale, California, with participation in research flights on NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). The program culminates in classroom delivery of a SOFIA science-oriented curriculum module.
For the AAA Cycle 8 patch, we directed submissions to contain the words “NASA AAA Cycle 8” and also include the managing organization, the SETI Institute. Optional images or words included: telescope, SOFIA, astronomical objects, and spectra.
The contest was a huge success! We thank everyone for the amazing participation and impressive submissions to our AAA Cycle 8 patch design contest.
We are pleased to announce the winning patch, which was designed by Susan Rolke at Conant High School in Jaffrey, NH.
