2009 Year in Review
The Center for Educational Technologies celebrated its 15th birthday in 2009 by doing what we've learned to do best—providing quality educational materials, reaching out to new audiences, and researching effective uses of ed tech. It's a path we've followed since our founding, and 2009 gave us plenty of opportunities to hone those skills.
With our long ties to NASA, we also took time this year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of man's landing on the Moon. Turns out we had a couple of veterans of the Apollo program living right in our backyard—and one of them is Chuck Wood, director of the center. Our lunar landing celebration brought them and members of the community together to reminisce about one of humanity's greatest achievements.
2009 was also a year for making progress on a number of long-term projects funded by some of the heavy hitters in the education and research fields—NASA, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, among others. Our work is rounding third and heading home on some of these, while on others we're just getting started. The ride promises to be thrilling, that's for sure.
